“As your State Representative, I have a voting record I am proud of. I will consistently serve as your conservative voice in Austin.”

– State Representative Briscoe Cain

I believe that increased border security is critical for increasing job opportunities for Americans and decreasing crime and taxes on Texas families. With over 1,200 miles of border with Mexico, Texas must act to stop the detrimental economic and social effects that come with illegal immigration. As your State Representative, I authored and supported legislation that would help President Donald Trump build his border wall and provide the necessary infrastructure that the U.S. Border Patrol needs to keep our border secure.

As your State Representative, I helped pass $5 billion in property tax relief that brings down school district property taxes. I supported Governor Greg Abbott’s property tax reform legislation to slow Texans’ property tax bills. I will continue to work on lowering property taxes, ensuring no Texan is priced out of their home because of taxes or preventing a Texan from ever truly owning their home.

If Texas is to continue as one of the best places to work and start a business then we must cut burdensome red tape, control taxes and spending, and invest in an educated workforce. This will help provide a staple and predictable job climate for businesses and entrepreneurs – the ones who can create jobs and grow the economy.

As your State Representative, I co-authored House Joint Resolution 38. HJR 38 proposed a constitutional amendment prohibiting the imposition of a state income tax. On November 5, 2019, Texas voters approved the constitutional amendment with over 74% of the vote.

I’m an unapologetic supporter of the Right to Life movement with a record to prove it. We must respect and protect life from conception to natural death. As a pro-life advocate with a record of defending the unborn I will lead the fight to fully end the abortion industry in Texas. That means the total defunding of Planned Parenthood and its affiliates. As your State Representative, I have consistently supported pro-life legislation – including authoring the Texas Heartbeat Bill; legislation that would prohibit an abortion after a heartbeat is detected.

When it comes to the 2nd Amendment, I follow the U.S. Constitution. The right of the people to keep and bear Arms shall not be infringed. As your State Representative, I voted to legalize the carrying of firearms at houses of worship, lowering the fee for a License to Carry, and supported Constitutional Carry legislation. 

The guarantee of religious liberty should be reestablished wherein all individuals (including pastors, teachers and government employees) are completely free at all times to freely express their religious beliefs and practices. I will lead the fight in Austin to ensure that traditional Christian values are restored and strengthened. I am fully committed to making sure Texas families stay strong and autonomous.

I believe the traditional family unit is the backbone of society and that marriage should be only between one man and one woman. I am happily married with four sons. We can strengthen Texas families by returning to principles of personal responsibility and accountability. As your State Representative, I supported the “Chick-fil-A” bill to prevent government discrimination of businesses based on religious beliefs.
