Nov. 10, Governor Greg Abbott issued a statement congratulating Southeast Texas Representative Dade Phelan on securing the necessary votes to become the next Speaker of the Texas House.

“Congratulations to my friend, Dade Phelan, for securing the votes – including over 95% of the Republican caucus – to become the next Speaker of the Texas House,” Abbott stated. “A strong conservative, Dade has a proven record of fighting for the lives and livelihoods of all Texans, having played a key role in authoring and passing critical legislation to bolster disaster relief and preparedness following the devastation of Hurricane Harvey.

“I look forward to working with him and all members of the House on commonsense, conservative legislation to create an even brighter future for the people of Texas.”
