SAN ANGELO, TX — State Representative Drew Darby (R – San Angelo) will seek re-election to represent House District 72 in the Texas House of Representatives.
Darby chairs the House Energy Resources Committee and the State & Federal Power & Responsibility Select-Committee.
“It is an honor to serve West Texas families and businesses that provide the fuel, food, and fiber to Texas and the nation,” Darby said via a press release. “I’m proud of the groundwork we laid this session to advance significant school finance reform to reduce Robin Hood and ensure local property taxes are not diverted to other areas of the state budget.”
In the regular and special sessions, Representative Darby lists his accomplishments for his constituents:
- Keeping State taxes low and strengthening the State’s rainy-day fund.
- Banning sanctuary cities and prohibiting any official from ignoring a lawful detainer order of an illegal alien.
- Barring Planned Parenthood from receiving state funds, increasing criminal penalties for abortion clinics trafficking human remains, and increasing funding for alternatives to abortion.
- Eliminating the small school adjustment that penalizes rural school districts with less funding than neighboring districts.
