REPRESENTATIVE LONGORIA NAMED CONFEREE

AUSTIN, TX-- Speaker of the House, Dennis Bonnen, has announced Representative Oscar Longoria (La Joya) as one of his five appointees to the powerful Conference Committee for House Bill 1, which is the state's appropriations bill for the 2020-2021 biennium.

The Conference Committee, which is composed equally of five members of the House and the Senate, is responsible for balancing the state budget and funding the state's priorities by resolving the differences between the Senate and the House versions of the budget.

"I would like to thank Speaker Bonnen for instilling in me his trust by allowing me to serve on the House Conference Committee for a second consecutive session," said Representative Oscar Longoria. "It has been a true honor to serve as Vice Chairman of House Appropriations and Chairman of the General Government Subcommittee. Our efforts in compiling numbers, statistics and documents from state agencies throughout the interim as a member of the Legislative Budget Board, as well as our work in preparing the logistics of this budget during the committee process, puts us in a unique position to finalize the outcome of this legislation. While the House and Senate versions of the budget vary greatly, I am confident we will work together to address and invest in Texas' most critical needs and programs, especially: healthcare, education, transportation, economic development, border security, and our institutions of Higher Education."
