State Representative Brooks Landgraf (R-Odessa) was elected by his Republican colleagues in the Texas House of Representatives to serve on the policy committee for the House's Republican caucus.
Landgraf, who is currently serving his second term as a state representative, is one of only two West Texans on the policy committee.
"I'm honored to have this opportunity," Landgraf said. "I'll take advantage of this position to recommend conservative legislation for my Republican colleagues, while also making sure that West Texas has a say in policy matters impacting the state."
The Texas House Republican Caucus policy committee is assembled to study each bill that is put up for a vote in the Texas House of Representatives. Members on the policy committee, like Landgraf, make recommendations to fellow Republicans regarding which bills reflect conservative principles and would lead to good public policy for the people of Texas.
The 85th Texas legislative session is underway and will run through May 29, 2017.
