I was in Kerrville last night for the 34th Annual Fundraiser for the Hill Country District Junior Livestock Show Association Banquet. It was great to see the previous scholarship recipients and hear about their accomplishments at their respective colleges. I enjoyed chatting with Mr. Steve Bauer, the group's president, during the event. It is always great to be in Kerrville where I can visit with my friends and supporters.

Today, I served as a panelist on the “Justice for All” track at #TribFest17 alongside several experts and Texas Supreme Court Chief Justice Nathan Hecht for an open forum discussion regarding indigent defense, bail reform, and mental health. During the 85th Legislative Session, I filed and worked on several bills pertaining to all three of these important issues so I am well versed in how these policies affect our state and local governments and the large amounts of tax dollars that we can attribute to them. Thanks to Josh Hinkle from KXAN News for moderating our panel and to the Texas Tribune for inviting me to participate.

Earlier today, I participated on a legislative panel for the Texas Indigent Defense Workshop at the State Capitol. Our panel discussed a number of legislative proposals considered during the recent legislative session. Among them was HB 3739, which I authored and passed, that eliminates the funding for two court cost accounts previously ruled unconstitutional and redirects these funds to the Texas Indigent Defense Fund. When fully implemented, this legislation will add approximately $16 million per year to the grant program that reimburses counties for indigent defense.

- 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.
