Senator Larry Taylor represents Texas Senate District 11, comprised of portions of Brazoria, Galveston, and Harris Counties. A native Texan, Larry attended Baylor University where he received his BBA in 1982. He and his wife Kerri are the proud parents of three adult children. Larry owns Truman Taylor Insurance Agency in Friendswood, an independent agency started by his father more than 50 years ago.

Senator Taylor serves as Vice Chairman of the Senate Business and Commerce Committee and as a member of the Senate Education, Government Organization, Health and Human Services, and Intergovernmental Relations Committees. Lieutenant Governor Dewhurst also chose him to represent Texas on The Energy Council; an honor he previously held as a state representative.

Since his election to the Texas Senate, Senator Taylor has been named to several key leadership positions by Lieutenant Governor David Dewhurst. Most recently, he was called upon to co-chair the Joint Interim Committee on Coastal Barrier Systems and to serve on the Texas Windstorm Insurance Legislative Oversight Board, of which he was also a member during his time in the Texas House of Representatives. He is also a recent appointee to both the Joint Interim Committee to Study Education Policy for a Skilled Workforce and the Legislative Committee to Review the Lottery and the Texas Lottery Commission.

Before his election to the Texas Senate in 2012, Senator Taylor served five terms in the Texas House of Representatives. During his tenure there, Larry served as the Chairman of the House Elections Committee, Co-Chairman of the Windstorm Insurance Legislative Oversight Board, as a member of the House Insurance Committee, the House Select Committee on Voter Identification and Voter Fraud, the Energy Council, and two terms as Chairman of the House Republican Caucus.

Senator Taylor is honored to have been named a "Taxpayer Advocate" by Texans for Fiscal Responsibility, a "Champion of Free Enterprise" by the Texas Association of Business, and a "Courageous Conservative" by the Texas Conservative Coalition. Locally, he was recognized as Galveston Daily News' "2011 Citizen of the Year" and named "Texas Legislative Champion" by the Sealy and Smith Foundation for his efforts to repair the University of Texas Medical Branch after Hurricane Ike.

One of the roles of which he is most proud is his longtime seat on the board of the Foundation for Hope Village. This organization supports the operation of Hope Village, a nonprofit residential and day program for individuals with intellectual and developmental disabilities.
