As the legislature reconvened for its 86th Regular Session, State Representative Rick Miller (Fort Bend) took the oath of office to serve a fourth term in the Texas House. "I am honored and privileged to serve as the voice for House District 26 in the Texas Legislature," stated Rep. Miller.
Representative Miller along with the other 149 State Representatives will be in session for 140 days considering a wide variety of topics affecting Texans from all walks of life. "As Chair of the Texas Legislature Veterans Caucus and a sitting member of the Human Services Committee, my top priorities include advocating for Texas veterans and creating serious reform in the Texas Child Protection Services system. I will tirelessly and relentlessly push to pass legislation that revamps trauma informed care training in the Foster Care System so that our foster children may receive the mental and emotional healing they deserve. Our Texas veterans and foster children need the legislative body to address their issues this session. They simply cannot afford to wait any longer," said Miller. In addition to these critical issues, Miller will be addressing the following important topics: public school finance and safety, teacher retirement, property taxes, economic development, healthcare, mental healthcare, and House District 26 priorities.
Miller looks forward to working with his colleagues to make positive changes and ensure that Fort Bend County and Texas continues to be the best place to live, work, and raise a family.
