Texas Insider Report: Austin, TX – “After a frank & open meeting with Speaker Straus, I am convinced Speaker Straus is committed to governing as a strong conservative during the 82nd session,” said Rep. Beverly Woolley, long time Republican & community activist currently serving her 8th term in the Texas House of Representatives earlier today. Woolley served as chairman of the powerful Calendars Committee under then-Speaker Tom Craddick.
“In the 82nd session, Speaker Straus will manage the House effectively, and with a supermajority behind him, we will pass conservative legislation,” said Wooley.
“As lifelong Republicans, the Speaker and I share steadfast beliefs in limited government, fiscal responsibility and low taxes; beliefs that are fundamental to the majority of my constituents,” said Rep. Woolley.
“Representative Woolley is a proven conservative leader for Texas,” said Speaker Straus.
“I’m honored to have Beverly’s support as we work together to address our state’s most important challenges during the upcoming legislative session,” Straus said.
Presently, Representative Woolley serves as a member on the House Committee on Judiciary & Civil Jurisprudence, as well as the House Committee on Pensions, Investments & Financial Services.
