(Austin, TX) - This past Wednesday, Representative John Wray (Waxahachie) and the other members of the Texas House of Representatives received their committee assignments from Speaker of the House Dennis Bonnen for the 86th Legislative Session.

Representative Wray's assignments include the Calendars Committee, the Ways and Means Committee, and an appointment as Vice Chair of the Public Health Committee. During the 85th Legislative Session, Wray served on the Transportation and Homeland Security Committees.

Regarding his assignments, Wray said, "I am thrilled that committee assignments have been announced and the Legislature is kicking into high gear. These assignments will allow me to represent Ellis County and District 10 in some of the biggest issues facing the Legislature, including property tax reform. I am also pleased to be asked to serve in a leadership role as Vice-Chairman for the House Committee on Public Health. I expect this to be a productive session, and look forward to delivering results for the constituents of District 10."

The Ways and Means Committee handles issues regarding taxation and state revenue, including critical topics such as property tax reform. The Ways and Means Committee traditionally hears one of the highest bill counts of any committee.

The powerful Calendars Committee determines the placement of bills and resolutions on the calendar schedule for House consideration.

The Public Health Committee oversees the Health and Human Services Commission and a number of public health related matters, including medicine, dentistry, and mental health. Representative Wray is honored to assume a leadership role on a committee that handles such vital issues for Texans.

State Representative John Wray is serving his third term representing House District 10, including Ellis County. In the 85th session, he served on the Transportation and Homeland Security Committees. A former councilman and mayor of Waxahachie, Wray currently practices Estate Planning and Probate Law in Ellis County.
Representative Wray is available for comments.
