    “I want to thank Speaker Joe Straus for the trust he has placed in me and will continue working alongside him and the rest of the members to ensure the state’s priorities are met during this session. The Appropriations Committee has jurisdiction over all bills and resolutions appropriating money from the state treasury. I look forward to working with the other members to ensure that as legislators we are fulfilling our obligation to be responsible stewards of our states finite resources. As Vice-Chair of Government Efficiency and Reform, I will be able to continue working on solutions to make our government more fiscally responsible and transparent. The Select Committee on Transparency in State Agency Operations was created by Speaker Straus to oversee transparency in the reporting of financial transactions of judicial and executive state agencies and affiliated entities. Serving on this committee will allow us to further the pursuit of increased transparency so that Texans can hold their government accountable.

    I’m pleased to see the diversity of the West Texas delegation committee assignments. These assignments will allow us to best represent the conservative values that prevail in West Texas. I look forward to continuing to make House District 83 an even better place to live, work and raise a family through my role on these important committees.”
