Capitol Update: 86th Session Kicks Off

January 9, 2019

Dear Friends,

The 86th Texas Legislature is now in session.

I was honored to take the Oath of Office yesterday with Robin and a number of other family members by my side… including the newest, our first grandchild, Oliver Kelly Cox!

It was a special day for our family, and I fully expect this session will be an effective one for our state.

With the Governor, Lieutenant Governor, and new Speaker of the House all voicing their determination to accomplish much-needed reforms of our property tax and school finance systems, I’m confident we’ll take significant steps forward on those important issues in 2019.

I had a chance to discuss those priority items on Channel 8’s Inside Texas Politics this past weekend. The video from that program is below if you’d like to take a look.

We look forward to hearing from you and keeping you informed of what’s going on in your State Capitol in the weeks ahead.

State Senator, District 9
