AUSTIN -- Today, Representative Chris Turner (HD101 - Grand Prairie) released the following statement in response to his appointment to the House Committees on Higher Education, Insurance, General Investigating & Ethics and the Select Committee on State and Federal Power and Responsibility.

"Continuing my service on the Higher Education Committee was a top priority and I will continue to be a strong voice for the University of Texas at Arlington, Tarrant County College and the University of North Texas Health Science Center.

"I look forward to once again serving on the Committee on Insurance and working to address rising homeowners’ insurance costs and access to health insurance.

"Last session, the General Investigating & Ethics Committee took important steps to crack down on the use of emergency leave as severance pay and to improve transparency by elected officials. Continuing this work will be key in ensuring that meaningful reforms are made."
