Issues - Robert Nichols for Senate

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

Today, Texas celebrates National Day of the Cowboy to commemorate the rich and enduring cowboy heritage. To celebrate I always like to share the Cowboy Code of Conduct. When there was no written law on the range, it was necessary for cowboys and cowgirls to frame their own code for personal conduct which centered on fair play, loyalty, honesty, integrity, and a solid work ethic – words we continue to live by in Texas today. ...

Fair play and Integrity are some great characteristics that our Legislators should practice and ELIMINATE PROPERTY TAX!

in texas we warn our legislators ever now and again to remember, dont squat with your spurs on. yall seem to forget that right often.

In Texas we say COWBOY UP!

Cow Men all over Texas are hurting because our Senators refuse to even discuss property tax elimination. We don’t want “relief”. That has failed us every time it has been tried. Replace property tax with sales tax. Help property owners, stop punishing us for working hard to achieve the American Dream of home ownership. HB3770 #EliminatePropertyTax

Bob Barrett you live this code I’m sure.
