And whatever you do, whether in word or deed, do it all in the name of the Lord Jesus, giving thanks to God the Father through him.

I was honored to join with Representative Donna Howard to offer an amendment to House Bill 3. House Bill 3 had no guarantee of funding for CTE programs. My amendment ensures that historical funding percentages are maintained by guaranteeing 58% of every state dollar allotted for Career and Technology Education be spent directly on CTE programs.This is a win for our rural students and businesses all over the state that desperately rely on the tools that CTE programs offer.

We are excited to see the Texas Senate pass SB 421, the companion bill to our bill, HB 991, eminent domain reform. Our office, in tandem with Senator Kolkhorst and the various stakeholder groups, has worked tirelessly on developing this significant piece of legislation. I congratulate Senator Kolkhorst, thank her for her diligent work and commend her for her fierce advocacy on behalf of property owners. Our work in the Texas House continues. From the start of this entire process I have endeavored to bring both sides together and I fully intend to build upon this good work. I maintain my firm commitment to all stakeholders and the people of Texas. It is now incumbent on the Texas House to work together to achieve real reform that protects both private property rights and the movement of energy across the State of Texas.
