Leading on Texas Ports

This morning I gaveled in the Senate Select Committee on Ports for our first legislative hearing. Representing two ports along the Sabine-Neches Navigation District, the Ports of Beaumont and Port Arthur, and most of the Houston Ship Channel, I know that state policies can make the difference in the heavy competition across the nation among top U.S. ports. Thanks to Senator Carol Alvarado, the committee’s Vice-Chair, and the members of the Committee for your commitment to strengthening Texas ports—an industry that accounts for one third of our GDP and creates thousands of jobs across the state. #txlege
