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.
