A few photos from today's signing of one of my #txlege priorities – Action Against Improper Student-Teacher Relationships. This legislation will strengthen reporting and training requirements, and establish appropriate penalties for superintendents or principals who do not report teachers who prey on their students.
I was honored to speak to the congregation this morning at Grace Community Church in The Woodlands where Governor Greg Abbott signed the Sermon Safeguard bill into law. This historic legislation will protect our First Amendment right to religious liberty.
Happy #ArmedForcesDay to the men and women who have served, or are currently serving, in the military. Thank you for keeping our country safe.
One of my legislative priorities – Sermon Safeguard – was signed into law by Governor Greg Abbott today. This legislation will give pastors critical protection from forced testimony and shield sermons from government subpoena power. Thank you to Senator Joan Huffman, R-Houston, who was the leader in the Senate on this issue. • • • • #txlege #txcommunity #texasvoters #ilovetexas #snaptexas
