Chairman James White Joins the Texas Conservative Coalition in Support of the Special Session

State Representative James White is honored to join the Texas Conservative Coalition (TCC) and fellow conservative legislators as a signee of the TCC letter to Governor Greg Abbott in support of his call for a special session.

In the letter, the signed legislators praise the victories that were made in the 85th Regular Sessionsuch as strengthening our local community safety with the ban on sanctuary cities and protecting our most vulnerable children with major foster care reform. Additionally, they thanked the governor for raising awareness of important issues that the Legislature can address after passing important agency sunset legislation. The TCC letter states that many of the issues that will be added rest on the fundamental principles of life, liberty, and property that Texans hold dear.
