issues

Robert Nichols shares the values of Senate District 3.  Senator Nichols proudly supports conservative principles in the Texas Senate, just as he has in other positions throughout his life.  Below are Nichols’ stances on critical issues facing Texas Today
Property Rights
The Government should never intrude upon your rights as a property owner.  As a state senator, Nichols supported legislation increasing an individuals’ right to protect his or her home from invasion, and he filed legislation to limit the use of eminent domain.  Before becoming a state senator, Nichols volunteered hundreds of hours to the protection of property rights, and as a member of the Texas Transportation Commission he worked with then-Senator Todd Staples to fix loopholes in Texas law threatened private property rights.
Property Taxes
Home ownership is a right that promotes strong families and investment in local communities.  Unfortunately, too many Texans are taxed out of their own homes.  The first bill Nichols filed in the Texas Senate cut appraisal caps in half.  He also supported successful legislation to extend significant property tax breaks to Texas’ senior citizens.  The legislature has begun many reforms to our property tax system, but more must be done to bring relief to overburdened property taxpayers.
Immigration
The protection of our border is the government’s first and foremost responsibility, and the federal government has failed. Senator Nichols supports Governor Perry’s efforts to improve border security and shut down illegal crossings.  As chair of the Senate Committee on Transportation he advocates for our state to do everything in its power to protect its citizens from unsecured borders.
Education
Texas must offer the best education in America and doing so means having the best schools in America. As a state senator, Nichols works directly with parents, teachers, and administrators to find real world solutions to the problems facing our schools.  Specifically, Senator Nichols supports increasing accountability, reforming standardized testing, and offering incentives for improved performance.  Senator Nichols also helped increase higher education opportunities for Senate District 3 and supported programs that encourage students to pursue a college degree.
Core values
It is impossible to speak on every issue that the Texas legislature may face. Therefore, it is imperative for constituents to know the key principles guiding Senator Nichols. Specifically, he is:
  • Pro-life
  • Pro-gun owner’s rights
  • Pro-job growth
  • Pro-local control
  • A fiscal conservative
  • A strong conservative
  • A strong advocate for the freedom to worship
  • A true believer in the free enterprise system

79th anniversary ♥️🤍💙

Today is Sine Die, concluding the 88th Texas Legislative Session. The Legislature worked hard this session to pass a number of important bills that will improve our state and protect the rights of all Texans. I'm grateful for the collaboration of my fellow Senators, our partners in the House, and Lt. Gov. Dan Patrick's leadership. ... See MoreSee Less

Thank you sir.

Senator, I’m very disappointed that this legislature did not address the teacher exodus and lack of a pay raise for our deserving public educators! I hope there is a plan for a special session called to make sure quality educators are taken care of!

We need property tax relief & we need it NOW! Please don’t kick the can down the road by waiting another 2 years.

Please don’t impeach Ken Paxton. We elected him, in a mostly honest election state. And, we knew about the allegations….from almost 8 years ago. Everyone I know, took his track record of fighting for Texans, into consideration. We made an educated decision. Please honor our vote, by voting AGAINST impeachment.

HB43 HB268 HB 577 would benefit the people. But y’all keep turning a blind eye to it. And y’all would still get money to line y’all’s wallets with.

You did ZERO for the people : What a terrible leader
