Texas is in Andrew Murr's blood

Andrew Murr - an 8th generation Texan, descendant of a pioneering family of one of our brave defenders of the Alamo, and grandson of former Governor Coke R. Stevenson – Representative Murr comes from a long line of Texans committed to making our state a better place to live for future generations. Read more about State Representative Andrew Murr...

Last month, you may recall that I was in Austin for an interim hearing as a member of the Select Committee on Opioids and Substance Abuse. Today, the committee is meeting again to continue our thorough research of what steps are available to attack this state-wide crisis. The panels today centered around prescriptions from the medical field - including anesthesiologists, dentists, hospitals, nurses, and pharmacists. We reviewed volumes of data and input on the current processes in place to eliminate abuse and fraud within prescription medications.

Last night, the Hill Country Alliance hosted another panel for the “Texas Water Symposium” in Junction at the Texas Tech University Llano River Field Station. I was joined on a panel discussion by Hughes Simpson, Program Leader, Texas A&M Forest Service and Dr. Tom Arsuffi, Director of the Llano River Field Station at Texas Tech University. The topic of discussion focused on Ecosystem Services and was moderated by the HCA Executive Director, Katherine Romans. I appreciated the opportunity to discuss this topic both from the point of view as a rancher and state policy maker. It was great to see so many familiar faces from the Hill Country attend this informative event.

Yesterday, I attended the retirement celebration of a truly great Texan in Sonora. The Sutton County Underground Water Conservation District celebrated the achievements of Dr. Joe David Ross for his 33 years of service as a board member (and its first president when it was formed in 1985). Among the presentations to him for his decades of advocacy for water issues, Dr. Ross received a resolution honoring him from the Texas House of Representatives. Thank you, Joe David Ross, for being an effective ambassador for Sutton County, its ranching heritage, and its precious natural resources.
