Some in the Tarrant County Republican Party want to remove a party officer because of his religious faith. This effort is disgraceful and un-American, and Republicans in Tarrant County should defeat it handily.

9/ Today, we identify clear steps & Gov. Greg Abbott can take to fix this mess. Abbott's administration can do most without legislation - though his office hasn't shown much interest. Some require legislative action. Read more:

Local officials are against my plan to cap your property taxes. They want to tax you more. I want to tax you less. It’s time for Texas to side with taxpayers NOT big government.

Last month, Rep. Beto O'Rourke came closer than any Democrat since the 1980's to winning a race. On his way to 48% against Sen. Cruz (R), he carried 16 of 36 districts. & went to Trump, but flipped to O'Rourke. Cruz also barely won several Trump seats.

This 2 min video shows how we fund Texas schools and how the current system is not serving students or taxpayers. Understanding how public schools are funded is the first step to strengthening our investment in Texas students.

One of many ways TX can improve child care safety/quality is collect data on caregiver-child ratios and reduce ratios as needed to ensure kids are safe and learning. The state thwarted these efforts in 2016-17 but we hope tackles this in 2019.

2/ It’s called civil asset forfeiture. Police can take cash and property they believe to be related to criminal activity, even if the person involved is never charged with a crime.

Texas politicians have been mumbling the same nonsense about property taxes and school funding for decades. It always leads to much higher taxes and schools that are falling deeper into fiscal decline. It appears Abbott’s next four years will be no exception.

File today at : HB 469 by Rep. Drew Springer, R-Muenster, would allow beer and wine sales starting at 10 a.m. Sundays, instead of noon. Cheers!

1/ Texas police made more than $50 million in 2017 from seizing people’s property. Not everyone was guilty of a crime.

Today I met with several of our school superintendents to discuss ways to improve school safety and mental health. I’m thankful for these men and women who work so hard for our students, and for leaders like State Rep. Terry Wilson and Commissioner Valerie Covey.

"Maternal deaths are just the tip of the iceberg." "instances of women having medical complications are about a hundred times more common than maternal deaths." Texas leaders must improve support for maternal health!

Regulating how police can seize people's property w/o finding them guilty of a crime is a bipartisan uphill battle, which may not get traction this session. via
