I was honored to bring HB 3163 to final passage in the House today. Now, it moves over to the senate. This is another important step in protecting our groundwater and those who manage it for future generations.
On January 6, a special election was held to select a new state representative to fill the vacated seat of Rep. Tim Kleinschmidt, who resigned. In this election, John Cyrier received more than 46% of the vote and won every county in the district. Now, a runoff election is scheduled for February 17 to finish selecting our new state representative. Early voting begins February 9. Texas House District 17 includes Bastrop, Caldwell, Gonzales, Lee, and Karnes counties.
A former county commissioner and local business owner John Cyrier, has worked closely with local business and civic leaders throughout House District 17.
