Dan Patrick Names Senator Hinojos Vice Chairman of Finance Committee

McALLEN, TX (ValleyCentral) — A series of appointments were announced Monday for Texas State Senator Juan “Chui” Hinojos, who represents part of Hidalgo County and the communities extending north.

A McAllen native and Democrat, Hinojosa will serve as Vice Chairman of the State Senate Finance Committee during the 88th Legislative Session following his appointment by Lt. Gov. Dan Patrick.

“With a historic $32.7 billion surplus, we have a big responsibility to address critical issues such as providing property tax breaks, increasing the salaries of teachers, civil servants and law enforcement officers,” Hinojosa said. “We will also provide additional support to our retired teachers, increase funding for community colleges and workforce training, and invest in our roads, broadband, water and sanitation infrastructure, and the power grid.”

The veteran senator enters his ninth legislative session as a member of the Senate Finance Committee and eighth session as vice chairman.

“This is a powerful leadership position that will benefit the South Texas region,” Hinojosa’s office said.

Hinojosa said he was honored to remain as vice chairman.

Hinojosa said he will work to strengthen the state’s economy, expand access to affordable health care, support public school students and teachers, and ensure public safety.

“He will continue to serve on the Senate Border Security Committee, the Senate Criminal Justice Committee, and the Senate Jurisprudence Committee,” Hinojosa’s office said Monday. “Earlier in this session [Patrick] also appointed [Hinojosa] to the Senate Select Committee on Redistricting and appointed him vice chairman of that committee.”

Hinojosa proudly represents Jim Wells and Brooks counties, as well as Nueces and Hidalgo counties.

Democratic Senator Morgan LaMantia, the first woman to represent the 27th District of the Texas Senate, which includes Brownsville, will serve on the Senate Education Committee.
