Every Election is Determined by the People Who Show Up

ISSUES

Education
Reggie is committed to our schools, to our teachers, and most importantly, to our children. He wants every child in Texas to have access to a first-class education and understands that we need to reduce the burden of over-testing and to further empower parents and teachers to improve their local schools. He is working to reduce and eliminate unfunded mandates on our schools that come down from Washington and Austin. Reggie believes that local education decisions should remain local and that education dollars should remain focused on our local schools, not sent elsewhere to unaccountable entities and initiatives.
While Reggie is committed to fighting for our students, he also understands our duty to support current and retired teachers. Ensuring the reliability and integrity of TRS Healthcare is crucial for many of our teachers and he is fighting to provide additional resources, like a supplemental 13th check per year to our retired teachers while also increasing the state’s contribution rates to the Teacher Retirement System.
Reggie also understands that we must reform our broken school finance system. He’s committed to reducing the reliance upon local school property taxes to fund education by restructuring without lessening the state’s share of pubic education funding to ease the tax burden placed on local property owners.
2nd Amendment
Reggie believes the right to keep and bear arms was settled when the 2nd Amendment was adopted to the U.S. Constitution in 1791. As an avid hunter and member of the Texas State Rifle Association and National Rifle Association, Reggie will continue to fight any federal government overreach or attempts in Austin that threaten the 2nd Amendment rights of law-abiding Texans.
During the 87th Legislative Session, Reggie was instrumental in passing House Bill 1927, also known as the “Permit-less Carry” bill. This bill allows law abiding citizens to carry a holstered handgun without requiring a license-to-carry.
Secure Borders
Reggie Smith knows that border crime isn’t just a border problem. From drugs to human trafficking, it hurts all of Texas. As State Representative, Reggie coauthored legislation to ban “sanctuary cities” and ensure that local law enforcement is provided the tools and resources they need to make our border secure.
While serving on the House Appropriations Committee, Reggie saw firsthand how additional financial resources are needed to combat illegal activity happening along our southern border and coauthored legislation that included:

  • $1.2 billion dedicated to surge border security efforts, including deploying 700 National Guard members and funding for future surge operations when additional manpower is needed.
  • $1 billion dedicated to border security grants to local law enforcement.
  • $300 million dedicated to increasing the number of additional active border security personnel.
  • $750 million dedicated to building temporary and permanent physical barriers along the border.
Pro-life
As a husband and father of three children, Reggie deeply values the sanctity of human life. He and his wife, Stephany, have been active supporters of pro-life causes and church programs that promote adoption and protection of the unborn.
During the 87th Legislative Session, Reggie coauthored Senate Bill 8, landmark pro-life legislation also known as the “heartbeat bill” that bans abortion once a heartbeat is detected. While in office, he also worked to eliminate funding for Planned Parenthood and provide additional resources to crucial pro-life alternatives.
Limited Government
As native of Northeast Texas, Reggie values hard work and personal responsibility. He understands that the government is not the solution to most problems but rather the cause. While serving as State Representative, Reggie has been a consistent champion for common sense reforms that reduce burdensome regulations on small businesses and spearheaded efforts to cut wasteful government programs so that individuals and families can keep more of what they earn.
District Impact
Reggie is a strong defender of constitutional rights and is quickly securing successes for his district. During the 87th Session and following special session, he shepherded legislation directly proposed by constituents of District 62, including:

  • House Bill 1399: Legislation requiring the collection of DNA from those who have been charged with violent and sexual offenses to better address the severe backlog of rape kits in Texas.
  • House Bill 374: Redrew a portion of the Texas/ Oklahoma border, by way of the Red River Boundary Commission, to better protect our state’s natural resources from invasive species of plants and animals, like zebra mussels, from other states.
  • Senate Bill 6: Landmark bail reform legislation passed this year to better protect the public and law enforcement by keeping dangerous criminals off our streets.
