Bell is the Texas State Representative of House District 4 for the 86th Texas Legislature. District 4 is a district of the Texas House of Representatives that serves the whole of Kaufman County and Henderson County.
Earlier this week I toured Starr and Hidalgo Counties. We met with Border Control Agents, US Customs Agents and DPS Troopers working collaboratively to protect and defend our borders. After personally talking to US Border Control Agents, it's apparent that they desperately need additional personnel, surveillance assets and structures to stop the illegal immigration, human and drug trafficking occurring in our state.
Leading the House in a Moment of silence
Special thanks to Speaker Bonnen and the House for allowing a moment of silence recognizing the recent tragedy in Athens. We ask for your continued prayers for the healing, support and comfort of the entire Athens community during these difficult days.
The first Public Education Committee took place Wednesday with Commissioner Morath and the Texas Education Agency (TEA) officials. We were provided an overview of the current education landscape, their appropriations requests and priorities occurring in our state.
