We need to restore the $5 billion that was previously cut from the budget for public education. We need to close corporate tax loopholes to make sure we adequately fund public education. We must stop trying to divert resources from the public schools with vouchers. Additionally, we need to restore the goal of education, support our teachers’ salaries, secure their pensions, and stop focusing on high stakes standardized testing.
The Rainy Fund should be reserved for disaster relief and emergency situations which affect the actual life of Texans.
I believe the state and federal government should provide the base law of the land. Certain protections like protection from discrimination and retaliation should be mandated state wide. However, localities should have the ability to govern their community if those ordinances do not conflict or impinge on state or federal law.

The gas tax has not been raised since 1991. We need to raise it by .05 cents. I support toll lanes as an express option to existing roadways (635 Express in Dallas for example). I do not support toll only roadways.
Human trafficking victims have a common history of early CPS incidents combined with truancy and runaway incidents. Yet currently there is no system that allows any of the agencies involved to see each other's information to potentially identify a high-risk victim. If elected as State Representative for District 112, I want to mandate a statewide system to allow each organization to retrieve data available to identify high-risk victims, allowing for intervention not possible today.
