AUSTIN, TX — Today, Senator Juan "Chuy" Hinojosa was sworn-in for his seventh term representing Texas Senate District 20. The ceremony took place in the Senate Chamber at the Texas Capitol.
Senator Hinojosa issued the following statement after being sworn in:
"I am honored to continue working representing my constituents of Senate District 20. We have 140 days to focus on addressing critical issues like border security, property taxes, affordable health care, education, workforce training, transportation, expanding broadband access, flood mitigation, power grid reliability, and human trafficking. With the $32.7 billion surplus Comptroller Glenn Hegar announced yesterday, we also have an incredible opportunity to not only fund the state's needs, but also make significant investments that will further strengthen the Texas economy. This includes reducing high property taxes, increasing salaries for our state employees and our teachers, and investing in our infrastructure."
