First name, last name 102 Student Center Drive San Marcos, TX 78666 September 24. 2007 Congressional District 21 2409 RAYBURN HOUSE OFFICE BUILDING WASHINGTON DC 20515 Phone: (202) 225-4236 Dear Mr. Lamar Smith: According to the Economic Policy Institute “ Among families with children and a low-wage worker, the affected worker contributes, on average, over half (59%) of the family's earnings.
