I have assembled a highly capable staff to assist me, and, together, we are eager to accomplish much good for the Panhandle and for Texas," stated Price. It is truly a great privilege to be the voice at the Texas Capitol for the district where I was born, raised, attended public school, and work. My staff and I look forward to again working hard on significant and meaningful legislation that will have a positive impact in the lives of Texans," commented Representative Price.
Key priorities for Price this legislative session include:
passing a fiscally sound budget that prioritizes public education and school finance reform,
continuing to improve our state's health infrastructure with vigilance on further enhancing rural access for both physical health and mental health,
strengthening higher education opportunities in the Texas Panhandle,
protecting private property rights, including our area's groundwater, and
continuing common sense regulatory and pro-economic development policies that encourage and enable entrepreneurs to further foster business growth and growth of jobs.
