Austin, Texas- Today, Speaker Bonnen announced committee appointments for the Texas House of Representatives for the 86th Texas Legislature. Representative Jessica González was appointed to serve on the House Committee on Criminal Jurisprudence and the House Committee on Urban Affairs.

Representative Jessica González issued the following statement:

"I am thrilled to be appointed to the Criminal Jurisprudence and Urban Affairs Committees. I grew up in District 104, and my law practice is based there today. The district is where I watched my parents grow their small business, and it’s where I watched working class Dallasites build our community. I thank Speaker Bonnen for the thought he put into the committee appointments and look forward to getting to work on behalf of my district.

“As the representative for the people of House District 104 and now a member of the Urban Affairs Committee, I am eager to begin tackling issues affecting neighborhoods in Dallas, Grand Prairie, and Irving, as well as those in cities around Texas. I look forward to working with our partners in municipal governments to address challenges facing our ever-growing cities, which includes ensuring the ability of local officials to make the right decisions for their communities.

“I am also looking forward to working with my colleagues on the Criminal Jurisprudence Committee. Unfortunately, too many Texans’ only experience with their government is via the criminal justice system, and I take seriously our responsibility to see that justice is done while balancing the interests of fairness, effective public safety, and civil rights. I am optimistic that our committee will work diligently to ensure that the promise of justice for all is realized in Texas.”
