2022 State Convention

Last weekend, the Republican Party of Texas held its State Convention. The Convention is held every two years and is an opportunity for GOP members to update our platform, craft legislative priorities, and elect party officers.

We had a wonderful Convention and it was great catching up with so many friends who are excited about Texas’ bright future! #LifeLibertyTexas


Upcoming Trip to Washington D.C. with NCOIL

This week, I will be traveling to Washington D.C. with a group of state legislators from across the country who are members of the National Council of Insurance Legislators (NCOIL). NCOIL is a legislative organization comprised principally of legislators serving on state insurance and financial institutions committees around the nation. NCOIL writes model laws in insurance, works to preserve the state jurisdiction over insurance as established by the McCarran-Ferguson Act seventy-four years ago, and to serve as an educational forum for public policy makers and interested parties.

NCOIL is an adamant, vocal opponent of any Congressional initiative that would deprive consumers of key state protections, preempt state laws that respond to unique insurance markets, threaten critical state premium tax revenue, and, in many cases, lead to cherry picking and fraud. That is why, this week, we are traveling to our nation’s capital to speak with federal lawmakers involved in insurance legislation.

I am looking forward to speaking with members of Congress about recent developments in insurance legislation and court rulings.
