ODESSA, Texas — State Representative Brooks Landgraf has been chosen to chair the Texas House Committee on Environmental Regulation.
He was also re-appointed to be on the Transportation Committee as well as being named to the Redistricting Committee.
“This chairmanship and these committee assignments put me in an optimal position to serve my fellow West Texans and our interests here in the Permian Basin,” Landgraf says. “I’m grateful to Speaker Phelan for his confidence in me, and welcome the additional responsibility. I am ready to get to work for the people of Texas.”
