Austin-State Representative Garnet F. Coleman (Houston) today was reappointed Chair of the County Affairs Committee, and reappointed to the Calendars and Public Health Committees. Representative Coleman released the following statement in response to Speaker Straus's committee assignments:

My appreciation and gratitude goes out to Speaker Straus for his vote of confidence, and my congratulations to all the committee chairs. As Chair, I'll continue to uphold an open, transparent, and inclusive committee process as we work on public policy that will move our state forward.

I'm honored to once again serve on the House Calendars Committee, where we set the legislation that will be debated on the House floor, and on the Public Health Committee.

I'll continue to fight to increase access to quality and affordable health coverage for Texans from every part of the state. I'll also work hard to ensure that the progress we've made in insuring Texas children is not undone, and that the federal health care law is implemented in a way to maximize benefits for Texas and Texans.

Representative Coleman is available for comment.
