Rep. Isaac Appointed to Critical Leadership Positions
AUSTIN, TX – State Representative Jason Isaac (R-Dripping Springs) was recently appointed as the Chairman of the Subcommittee on Small Business Development, a subcommittee tasked with investigating and developing effective public policy relating to small businesses in Texas.
Representative Angie Chen-Button, Chairman of the House Committee on Economic & Small Business Development, stated "I am happy to appoint Jason Isaac as Chair of the Subcommittee on Small Business Development. As a small business owner himself, Chairman Isaac brings a wealth of knowledge to this area. His energy and leadership will benefit the committee and the great state of Texas."
Rep. Isaac stated, “I understand first-hand the challenges that these entities face. We must continually strive to maintain Texas’ role as our country’s leader in job creation, and I am passionate about getting government out of the way of doing business here. It is an honor to be appointed as Chairman of this important subcommittee.”
This announcement comes on the heels of Rep. Isaac’s recent election to the Texas Conservative Coalition (TCC) Board as the Treasurer of the organization. Formed in 1985, TCC has distinguished itself as one of the largest and most influential caucuses in the Texas Legislature. As a legislator driven organization, TCC is committed to shaping public policy by promoting limited government, individual liberty, free enterprise, and traditional values.
Rep. Isaac continued, “TCC is an amazing resource that not only offers detailed research on the myriad of issues that the Legislature is facing, but also ensures that conservatives have the coordination and tools we need to further our policy priorities. I am humbled by the trust that my colleagues have placed in me by electing me to be a part of the leadership team.”
Rep. Isaac was also recently appointed by the Speaker to three House Committees: Economic and Small Business Development, Environmental Regulation, and Local and Consent Calendars.
“These committee assignments will allow me continue my work on economic development and environmental issues, while providing me with the opportunity to have a greater impact on the local legislation that reaches the House floor," said Rep. Isaac.
“This is the first time in fourteen years Texans have had a new Governor and new executive leadership at the Capitol," Rep. Isaac concluded. "It is vital that the Legislature remain steadfast in pursuing economic freedom and conservative values. These appointments will help me to further this goal, and I’m looking forward to all that we can accomplish during the 84th legislative session."
