My Priorities

My call to public service came from God’s plan for me and my family. It was God’s calling that led me to run for office and it is His call once again that brings me back.  Since my first election, I have become a respected voice for prosperity, limited government, and innovative policy solutions in Austin. Many of my legislative achievements have received national acclaim and several are now national model policies. With God’s blessing, I have the strength and vision to continue to serve our community, and I humbly ask for your continued support!

ICYMI: A landmark day for consumers and for the value of dedication and commitment.

By fixing patent issues, decreasing costs associated with generic competition, and increasing speed to market, this bill goes a long way in lowering costs for consumers.

I know that sponsors Sen. John Cornyn (R-TX) and Sen. Dick Blumenthal (D-CT) worked for years on this issue and bill, and I thank and congratulate them both. I look forward to watching the bill pass through the House and ultimately signed into law.
