Yesterday, I was excited to welcome a large group from Kerr County who visited the State Capitol. They were here participating in a day-long trip with Leadership Kerr County. They enjoyed a tour of the Capitol, saw the Texas House in action, listened to presentations by my Chief of Staff, the Assistant Commissioner of Agriculture, and the Comptroller himself, Honorable Glenn Hegar. They also visited the map archive room at the Texas General Land Office to see the amazing artifacts housed there. Thanks for coming to the Capitol to see the Texas Legislature in action!

Last night, I was invited to attend The Admiral Nimitz Foundation's Annual Nimitz Dinner in Fredericksburg. Ret. USMC General Michael Hagee gave the welcome, and our keynote address was by our very own Texas Governor Greg Abbott. One of my House district's state senators, Senator Dawn Buckingham introduced Gov. Abbott. It was a successful event!

Yesterday, the House Committee on Judiciary and Civil Jurisprudence, on which I sit, heard HB 1487 authored by Chairman Smithee. This important bill relates to the security of courts and judges across the state and the issue is a priority for Texas Supreme Court Chief Justice Nathan Hecht. By now, many have heard the chilling story of how Travis County District Judge Honorable Julie Kocurek survived a shocking assassination attempt by a criminal defendant in her own driveway in 2015. The assailant was easily able to located the judge's personal information, including home address, on the internet (one topic addressed by HB 1487). I am a joint author of this bill. Our legislature should pass this important legislation so we can do our part to keep judges safe and preserve the physical integrity of our judicial system.

- A Message from Andrew Murr -

Like all freshman legislators, my first legislative session in the Texas House was very challenging, but in the final analysis it resulted in one victory after another for hard-working Texas families. We passed a fiscally conservative, balanced budget while still adding funding for education, border security, transportation and child protection. We protected the rainy day fund, cut taxes, and had one of the most conservative legislative sessions in memory.

I could have never achieved so much during my first term in the legislature without the wisdom and counsel of my constituents. I look forward to continuing our work together to benefit our district, rural Texas, and the entire state.
