AUSTIN – The following statement may be attributed to State Representative Phil King (R-Weatherford):

“Today I received two new committee assignments, the House Committee on Energy Resources and the House Committee on Pensions. I am exceptionally pleased with these two opportunities.”

“Energy production accounts for over one-fourth of the Texas economy and is an essential driver of our economy in the Barnett Shale area. The Pensions Committee oversees management and investment of some of the largest pension plans in the United States, some of which are experiencing difficulties right now. The Teacher Retirement System alone has over $110 billion in net assets, serving one of every twenty Texans.”

“Both of these committees deal with extremely important topics facing Texas and I am eager and honored to have the opportunity to get to work on these critical issues.”
