Education Funding & Teacher Pay

  • John was proud to be a co-author of House Bill 3, which increased per-student funding to our schools by an average of over five percent. It led to better salaries for teachers and school staff. It provided new resources for students with dyslexia, for students in dual language programs, for teachers in need of mentoring, and for other innovative, research-based programs. And it lowered local school M&O property tax rates – here in District 114 by almost nine percent.
  • Even with the passage of House Bill 3, Texas has further to go. We need to ensure that the new investments we are making yield the results we expect. And we must resist the temptation to go backward, and fall back into the pre-2019 cycle of leaving schools with “whatever is left” in the budget.

Texas Economy & Taxes

  • Sound tax and regulatory policy are important keys to a healthy economy, but they’re not the only ones. Long-term prosperity also means maintaining strong public schools, world-class universities, safe cities, a reliable water supply, and good transportation networks. It means insisting on high-quality medical care and clean air and water. It means supporting workplaces that are free of discrimination and harassment. It means promoting a generous and neighborly spirit that will attract growth and business. The Legislature plays an important role in all of these areas.
  • Texans appreciate the importance of sensible regulatory and tax policies that allow businesses to grow; that encourage entrepreneurship, industry, and innovation; and that ensure that we foster a thriving middle class. That’s one reason John advocates for property tax relief through expanding homestead exemptions, and why he opposed the effort to increase sales taxes during the 2019 legislative term.

Healthcare

  • “Your rising premiums and deductibles are resulting from failed government programs like Obamacare, and I am working hard to reverse this damage.”
  • “Healthcare is vital to every Texan’s well-being, and it is imperative that each citizen has access to quality healthcare at fair prices.”
  • That is why I’m working with doctors on free market-based legislation that will increase access to healthcare, improve patient choice, reduce costs, and give you more control of your healthcare.”
