Best of 2017: State Rep. Bill Zedler

“The Dean”

Now in his seventh session in the Texas House, State Rep. Bill Zedler (R–Arlington) is a grizzled veteran with a huge amount of experience from all of the battles he has fought over the years. Even though virtually all the other lawmakers from his class came in as conservatives only to quickly surrender their principles, Zedler has held true to his principles throughout his time in the legislature.

Zedler is one of a select few lawmakers who has maintained an “A” rating on the Fiscal Responsibility Index in every session in which he has served since the Index was unveiled in 2007. With a wealth of experience in the Texas House, Zedler serves as a mentor for the Texas Freedom Caucus’s younger and newer members.
