Vice Chair of House Appropriations Committee, Representative González Named Chair of Sub Committee on Articles I, IV, V
AUSTIN, TX— Last week, State Representative Mary E. González was appointed as Chair of the House Appropriations Subcommittee on Articles I, IV, and V by Chairman Greg Bonnen. Articles I, IV, and V oversee General Government, the Judiciary, and Public Safety and Criminal Justice.
In a statement, Rep. González said, "The COVID-19 pandemic and recent winter storm crisis have impacted our state in so many ways and it is critical that core government agencies have the resources they need to best serve Texans. During these challenging times we must ensure our communities, especially those most vulnerable and marginalized, have continued access to justice. At the same time, we must plan for the future prosperity of our state and all its residents. I look forward to working with my colleagues on the subcommittee to achieve a fiscally sound budget that prioritizes Texas families."
"I'd like to thank Speaker Phelan and Chairman Bonnen for entrusting me with this important responsibility and opportunity to serve the State of Texas.”
