State Representative Kevin Bailey announces reelection bid

State Representative Kevin Bailey, has announced his reelection bid for District 140.

Bailey, who is seeking reelection to Texas House of Representatives currently serves on the State Affairs and House Administration committees. He is vice-chairman of the Urban Affairs Committee that oversees all legislation affecting cities and major metropolitan areas and one of only two representatives to be given a fourth committee assignment to the Constitutional Revision Committee. In addition, Bailey is the chairman of the Legislative Study Group, an Organization of more than 70 House members.

Bailey’s consistent legislative efforts are evidence of his strong belief in addressing the needs of his district. “I believe we have made significant progress in making improvements in north Houston,” said Bailey. “In the last legislative session a bill was passed creating the Aldine Community District to provide economic growth for our area. In addition, new legislation allows Harris County to contract with water / sewer providers to bring clean water and sewer to communities in need of the services. Also, I sponsored legislation that allows the City of Houston to demolish and remove dangerous buildings in a timely manner. The legislation was signed into law and became effective September 1.”

Over the next year, Rep. Bailey will be preparing to address issues that the legislature will face in the 2003 Legislative Session including the state’s ability to respond to terrorists’ threats and the pending deregulation of electric utilities along with many other issues.
