Government Spending – structural reform imperative

This short, entertaining video demonstrates the need to do more than merely “cut” federal spending. There must be true structural reform. The same is true for our state budget. Although Texas hasn’t amassed unmanageable debt, mere cuts alone will not protect us from tax increases and rapid government growth. Medicaid (not Medicare) spending alone will soon exceed public education spending in Texas!

Click here to view the video. It is a pleasure to serve you in the Texas Legislature.

Sincerely,

Phil King

Obama Administration Placing Pro-Abortion Politics Over Womens’ Health Program

I want to share with you this excellent editorial by Governor Perry about the Women’s Health Program and the political games the Obama Administration is playing with it. I recently wrote a letter to Health and Human Services Commissioner Tom Suehs with several other representatives on this subject, urging him to stay the course and follow the intent of the legislature by not giving in to the pressure he’s receiving from the federal government to give taxpayer dollars to abortion providers.

King: Leave the Classroom to Parents and Locals

By Phil King, February 17, 2012 – 

Earlier this week I read a Fort Worth Star-Telegram editorial piece: “End-of-course exams in Texas schools raise a furor” with dismay. The piece discusses the impending “end-of-course” exams in Texas public high schools, which will count for 15% of the student’s final grade.

Much controversy surrounds this “latest” iteration of standardized testing in public schools. Once again, parents, teachers, school administrators (and many legislators) have voiced concern and yet, here we go again. Standardized testing is not in and of itself the problem, but is symptomatic of the real problem: the idea that state and federal authorities are better equipped to manage education than our local communities.

AUSTIN – State Representatives Jim Keffer (R-Eastland) and Phil King (R-Weatherford) today called for the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) to provide scientific evidence to show why it is necessary that the EPA add Hood and Wise counties to the DFW nonattainment area. Late last week the EPA notified Texas officials that they planned to add the two counties to the current 9-county nonattainment area of: Collin, Dallas, Denton, Ellis, Johnson, Kaufman, Parker, Rockwall and Tarrant counties based on the fact that Hood and Wise counties were part of the region being developed for natural gas in the Barnett Shale region.
