AUSTIN, TX Rep. Sarah Davis (Houston) was again selected as a lead state budget negotiator on behalf of the Texas House. Davis is one of five House members who were appointed to the conference committee that will reconcile differences between House and Senate versions of the state budget in order to pass a new budget into law for the 2020-2021 biennium. This marks Daviss third consecutive legislative session to be appointed as a budget conferee. As a subcommittee chair on the budget-writing Appropriations Committee, Davis is the Houses lead budget writer for Article II of the state budget, which covers health care and human services.

I am honored that my colleagues have again entrusted me with this leadership role. I look forward to working with my fellow conferees to negotiate a state budget that is balanced, responsible, and fulfills important commitments to improve education and healthcare, said Davis.

In previous budget negotiations, Davis successfully fought to protect funding for health care priorities that serve vulnerable populations, including women and expectant mothers, children, cancer survivors, and low-income Texans. A breast cancer survivor, improving health care delivery, access, and outcomes are among Daviss top priorities, while still ensuring a balanced budget that holds the line on state spending.
