Senator Estes Receives Appointment by Lt. Governor Dewhurst

Austin—State Senator Craig Estes (R-Wichita Falls) has been appointed by Lt. Governor David Dewhurst to the Senate Committee on Finance.

"Recently, CNBC rated Texas as one of the best states in America to do business," said Estes. "The shared qualities of Texas industry, including our workforce, economy, education, quality of life, technology and innovation exemplify the state's financial and business independence."

"It is a privilege to be appointed to the Senate Committee on Finance, and I look forward to working with my colleagues in promoting fiscally responsible development for our quality of life here in Texas," said Estes.

Estes was recently appointed by Lt. Governor Dewhurst to serve on the Senate Select Committee on Redistricting, which will take the 2010 census data and use the information to reapportion congressional districts as well as districts for the state legislature.

Senator Estes is Chairman of the Senate Committee on Agriculture and Rural Affairs, and represents Senate District 30 covering Archer, Baylor, Clay, Collin (part), Cooke, Denton (part), Grayson, Jack, Montague, Parker, Palo Pinto, Shackelford, Stephens, Throckmorton, Wichita, Wilbarger, Wise, and Young counties.
