It’s an honor to be named one of the MVPs of the Texas Legislature by the Rural Friends of Electric Cooperatives. I am especially grateful to be recognized as a “dependable ally” for electric co-ops and rural Texans.

This last session, I helped pass a law that is land owner friendly while providing a crucial requirement for more broadband internet services in rural Texas. The resulting law allows Electric Coops to use their existing right-of-way to run cable and provide high-speed internet to their customers.

Thank you for the recognition of hard work by me and my staff this session. I will always fight for rural Texans and stand up for our values.
