We recommend that voters in the 112th District return Republican Rep. Angie Chen Button to the Texas House of Representatives for a sixth term. Although we sometimes disagree with her, Button has proved an effective and consequential member of the House. She used her chairwoman’s gavel two sessions ago to help overhaul the Texas Enterprise Fund and to create a new pathway for millions in additional funding for high-end research at Texas’ best universities, including UT Southwestern in Dallas. Button, 64 and a former Dallas Area Rapid Transit board member, also strongly supported House Bill 21, which would have added up to $1.8 billion in school funding before it was gutted by the Senate. And when the Senate pushed hard to advance the controversial bathroom bill, she stood with Speaker Joe Straus to see that it died before becoming law.
