SENATOR NELSON TAKES OATH OF OFFICE FOR 4-YEAR TERM

AUSTIN -- Having won re-election by a higher margin than any other incumbent State Senator in Texas facing major party opposition, State Senator Jane Nelson, R-Lewisville, was sworn in today to serve a four-year term representing District 12, which includes portions of Tarrant and Denton counties.

"It is a great honor to be sworn in today surrounded by family and friends from North Texas, and I look forward to continuing our work to advance the issues of importance to our community -- transportation, education, health care and responsible, limited government," Senator Nelson said.

Texas Supreme Court Chief Justice Wallace Jefferson officiated the swearing-in ceremonies today in the Senate Chamber as the Legislature kicked off the 2007 legislative session, which lasts from today through May 28. To follow the Legislature online, visit www.capitol.state.tx.us.
