Capitol Comments December 5, 2017

December 5, 2017

We have had much to be thankful for over the past month as we take stock of all that 2017 has brought. At the Capitol, the House Republican Caucus has approved rule changes on how the next Speaker will be elected. I am also thankful for the resilience of our state as we have weathered Hurricane Harvey and the worst mass shooting in Texas history. Lisa and I continue to pray for those victimized by these events.

During the past month, momentous change has occurred in the Texas House. The Speaker of the House, Joe Straus, has decided to retire after five terms as Speaker. We have also been grappling with the aftermath of Harvey. I have been out and about at many events in my district as well, listening to constituents and hearing your opinions.
