Congressman Kevin Brady (R-TX-08) released the following statement regarding the passing of Texas Workforce Commission Executive Director Larry Temple:

“Not everyone gets to do a job they love and truly makes a difference, but Larry Temple helped his fellow Texans find a job and took great joy in doing it. He was an invaluable resource to the Ways and Means Committee during my time as Chairman, sharing ideas and technical assistance that led to landmark workforce legislation being written and passed by the Committee. As the founding leader of the Secretaries’ Innovation Group, he led the charge in helping his colleagues find the best ways to assist the people they served. An untold number of Americans are better off because of Larry’s hard work and commitment to innovation.

“Larry’s loss will be deeply felt in Texas and across the country. I extend my sincere condolences to his wife, Benita, their two sons, Brad and Daniel, and their families.”
