State Representative Jeff Leach proudly serves the citizens of House District 67, consisting of portions of Plano, Allen, Richardson and Dallas in Collin County
A committed fiscal conservative, Representative Leach believes in limiting the size and scope of government, lowering taxes and wisely investing in the critical infrastructure necessary to ensure that our business climate in Texas remains strong. After the 83rd Legislative Session, Leach was recognized by the Dallas Morning News as one of the "Best of the North Texas Freshman Class" and by Capitol Inside as one of the "Best Freshman Legislators."
During his first session, Representative Leach successfully authored legislation limiting the reckless expansion of Medicaid under the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act, as well as a provision that will spur stable job growth in Texas by providing substantial tax relief for business owners that relocate to Texas.
Additionally, Representative Leach passed landmark legislation in the Texas House to crack down on sexual offenders and make our neighborhoods safer. Furthermore, Representative Leach proudly co-authored House Bill 4, addressing our state’s long term water needs by formulating a steady plan to provide the vital capital needed to fund the State Water Plan and providing a long-term, fiscally responsible solution.
Representative Leach serves on the House Committee on Criminal Jurisprudence, the House Committee on Urban Affairs and the House Committee on Rules & Resolutions. Additionally, Leach was elected by his colleagues to serve on the Policy Committee for the Texas House Republican Caucus.
Born and raised in Plano, Representative Leach graduated from Plano Senior High before attending Baylor University, where he served as Student Body President for two consecutive terms. During his time at Baylor he served President Bush in the White House Office of Political Affairs and the Republican National Committee. Leach went on to earn his law degree from Southern Methodist University’s Dedman School of Law and currently practices at the law firm of Looper, Reed & McGraw, P.C., specializing in general and civil commercial litigation, real estate and construction law.
Representative Leach and his wife Becky are the proud parents of Brady (age 5) and Charlotte (age 2). In addition to his service with numerous other community organizations, Jeff and Becky are active members of Prestonwood Baptist Church, where they have served for several years in the Young Families Ministry.last updated on 10/22/2013
