It is an honor to represent you at the State Legislator. When I got to the State Capitol I told leadership that I was there to work and to load me up. They took me seriously! I'm the Vice-Chairman of the Appropriations Committee. Member of the Finance Committee, the Government Committee and the Judiciary Committee, I also serve on the Joint Committee on Capital Review, and the Joint Legislative Budget Committee. I've won awards from pro-family and pro-taxpayer groups, I've helped to increase education funding and have supported reforms that are having positive effects on our K-12 students' performance, and I continue to advocate for real border security and an end to illegal immigration. I will continue to represent you with the Belief in Constitutionality.
