Chairman James White Joins the Texas Conservative Coalition in Support of the Special Session
(Austin, TX) - State Representative James White is honored to join the Texas Conservative Coalition (TCC) and fellow conservative legislators as a signee of the TCC letter to Governor Greg Abbott in support of his call for a special session.
In the letter, the signed legislators praise the victories that were made in the 85th Regular Session such as strengthening our local community safety with the ban on sanctuary cities and protecting our most vulnerable children with major foster care reform. Additionally, they thanked the governor for raising awareness of important issues that the Legislature can address after passing important agency sunset legislation. The TCC letter states that many of the issues that will be added rest on the fundamental principles of life, liberty, and property that Texans hold dear. “Throughout the district, citizens are frustrated that after giving the GOP majorities in Congress and the Texas Legislature, Republican legislators seem more interested in fighting President Trump and Governor Abbott, instead of passing the conservative agenda that voters chose last November,” said Rep. White.
“Property tax reform, school finance, spending limitations, protection of the unborn, privacy, and taxpayer protections are issues that are important to not only House District 19 but to the entire state. I look forward to returning to Austin on behalf of the people of Tyler, Jasper, Newton, Hardin, and Polk counties to represent them and fight for the issues that matter to them the most,” said Rep. White. “I thank the TCC and my colleagues for working to make this special session count in passing reforms that Texans have wanted for years.”
