Shelby Slawson is the State Representative for Texas House District 59, an 8-county district including Comanche, Coryell, Erath, Hamilton, McCulloch, Mills, San Saba, and Somervell Counties.
During the 87th Legislative Session, Central Texans' election to send in a conservative fighter was quickly met with appointments of Rep Slawson to the powerful Calendars, State Affairs, and Pensions, Investments & Financial Services committees. These appointments are especially remarkable for being the first freshman appointment to Calendars since 1985 and the first time a freshman served simultaneously on Calendars and State Affairs since 1973!
As your State Rep, and as another rarity for a freshman legislator, she carried the historic Texas Heartbeat Act (SB 8) in the House, passing the most significant pro-life bill in Texas' history!
In the post-session, independent analysis of legislators published by Rice University, Rep Slawson is pleased to be ranked the Most Conservative Woman in the Texas House, and 12th most conservative of all 150 members.
"We achieved many significant victories for Texans this session, including passage of the Texas Heartbeat Act and protection of your Second Amendment rights and right to worship. There is much work yet to be done, and I look forward to continuing to fight for you.
Thank you from the bottom of my heart for your enthusiasm and passion for our Deeply Red Heart of Texas. Our journey—our fight for our shared conservative values and to Keep Texas RED—has only just begun."
God Bless You &
God Bless Texas,
Representative Shelby Slawson
