On the first day of June, the Texas House of Representatives closed out one of the most conservative legislative sessions in Texas history by delivering one victory after another for hard-working families across the state. Bosque and Johnson Counties' Representative, DeWayne Burns, proved himself to be an effective leader in advocating for ground breaking legislation both on the House floor and in the committee room.
In 2015, the Texas House prioritized border security and made a historic and unprecedented investment in keeping Texans safe.
Representative John Cyrier won the special election to fill the vacant seat for House District 17 in the Texas House of Representatives on February 17, 2015, and was sworn into office just nine days before the deadline to file legislation for the 84th Legislative Session. Without fail, he hit the ground running on his very first day in the House and it is evident that he came to the Texas Capitol with a goal of achieving what the voters of his district sent him there to do and it paid off. Although he was elected a month after the legislative session began, he was able to pass legislation that is important to his district, and was very effective in helping the House pass crucial legislation for the state of Texas.
