Austin- Representative Helen Giddings (Dallas) was reappointed to the three most powerful committees in the Texas House- State Affairs, where she serves as the Vice-Chair, Appropriations, as well as Calendars.
“On the State Affairs Committee, we confront so many issues of significance to our state. Our committee is often the first to face issues of human rights, government transparency, and taxpayer stewardship. As Vice-Chair, I'm pleased to be a voice for Texans as we tackle these issues."
“The appointment to Appropriations is a critical responsibility that calls on us to be responsible stewards of the state budget. We have a particular responsibility to invest in the many unmet needs in this state- from public education, to making college more affordable, to expanding our transportation systems and access to healthcare. For Texas to live up to its full potential, every Texan must have the opportunity to reach their own."
