Happy Easter! He is Risen!

The citizens of Texas have demanded property tax reform loud and clear. SB 2 strengthens voter-approval limits on property tax growth and improves the balance between state and local public education funding. With dozens of property tax relief and appraisal reform bills moving through the Capitol this session, we're well on our way to a real and meaningful overhaul of a broken property tax system. #txlege

I was honored to pass SB 1891 through the Texas Senate today, a bill that would tighten our state spending limit and make sure future generations of Texans live under a fiscally responsible state gov't. #txlege

Did you know there are three electric power regions in the U.S. -- eastern, western, and TEXAS (ERCOT)? Last week, two grid security bills I authored passed the Texas Senate unanimously! SB 475 creates the Grid Security Council to protect and secure our physical infrastructure, and SB 936 establishes a Texas Cyber Security Monitor to coordinate protection against cyber attacks with the PUC, ERCOT, and utility companies. #txlege

It’s time to do right by Texas patients and end surprise medical bills. #txlege

"The quest to protect Texans against "shock" medical billing gained momentum Monday as two similar, bi-partisan pieces of legislation were merged, taking the strongest aim yet at a business practice that continues to financially devastate unsuspecting patients. [...] Hancock has led the fight for a decade against patients being saddled with the remainder of a bill that insurance does not pay."

It’s an exciting day in Westlake: Fire-EMS Station No. 1 Grand Opening!

The dog days of session have begun...

"Sen. Kelly Hancock, the Republican author of Senate Bill 476, told senators that he believed it was his first bill to mirror action taken by Austin, a liberal city that is more likely to draw GOP ire for its policies. “A good idea is a good idea,” Hancock said.

Like Austin’s rules, SB 476 would let patrons bring dogs to sidewalk cafes and patios as long as the pets can get there without walking through the restaurant interior, the dog stays on a leash and doesn’t sit in a chair, and no food is prepared on the patio.

Hancock’s bill would also overturn city regulations that impose more stringent rules on dog-friendly restaurants."

It’s a privilege to serve as Chairman of the Texas Senate Business & Commerce Committee again this legislative session. Our strong economy continues to lead the nation – ranking in the Top 10 globally – so we wanted to share some great news with you in our first edition of the Texas Business Minute… please take a look!
