Over the past few days, there have been third-party groups engaging in spreading false and misleading information about Republican Members of the Texas House. I would like to set the record straight.
(Austin, Texas) On Thursday, Republican Members of the Texas House showed their commitment to providing the necessary reform to Child Protective Services by approving House Bill 4, which provides additional monetary assistance for family members who care for a child who has been removed from his or her home, and House Bill 5, which makes the Department of Family and Protective Services (DFPS) a stand-alone agency with a Commissioner appointed by the Governor.
(Austin, Texas) Today, the Texas House Republican Caucus Chairman, Tan Parker, announced the appointment of Representative Jim Murphy as the Caucus Floor Leader for the 85th Legislative Session. Representative Murphy served in the same capacity in the 84th session.
