Best of 2017: State Rep. Matt Krause
“The Quiet Warrior”
Throughout the session State Rep. Matt Krause (R–Fort Worth) has been quietly working to protect religious liberty in every arena he could find. In nearly every sunset bill affecting a state agency, Krause was successful in adding language to protect the consciences of Texas professionals.
Similarly, during the debate on the state budget, Krause worked hard to increase funding to the pro-life Alternatives to Abortion program and to prevent state funds from going to organizations like Planned Parenthood.
Though not as salty or outspoken as some of his fellow members of the Freedom Caucus, Krause cemented his position as one of citizens’ best lawmakers for the good work that he did this session.
