AUSTIN, TX—Speaker Dennis Bonnen announced Texas House Committee Assignments for the 86th Legislature today.

Energy Resources

Representative Rosenthal stated, “Working in engineering for over 20 years, I’d hoped to be assigned to the Energy Resources Committee where my expertise would be valued, and today I’m glad to have been selected for this committee. It’s clear that this was a thoughtful assignment from Speaker Bonnen.”

The Energy Resources Committee has a total of 11 members and jurisdiction over all matters pertaining to the conservation of energy resources of Texas, identifying, developing, and using alternative energy sources, the coordination of the state’s efforts related to the federal designation of threatened and endangered species as it relates to energy resources in the state; and other jurisdiction as listed on the Texas House website.

County Affairs

“Being on the County Affairs Committee is an honor and I look forward to a working with Chairman Garnet Coleman and am eager for the mentorship he will provide,” said Rosenthal. House District 135 falls inside of Harris County, the largest county in the state by population.

The County Affairs Committee is comprised of 9 members. The committee has jurisdiction over all matters pertaining to counties, including their organization, creation, boundaries, government, and finance and the compensation and duties of their officers and employees; amongst other areas.

Speaker Dennis Bonnen stated, “I believe these committee assignments will allow every member to represent his or her district and bring the member's individual strengths to the table, while also providing more opportunities for individual members to participate in policymaking decisions that affect all Texans."
