Nelson was recognized as an Exemplary Conservative for her leadership in producing a prudent, strategic budget, tax cuts and relief, as well as policies that increase government transparency, according to a news release from her office. She was also recognized as a 2019 Effective Conservative for passing legislation that supports limited government and conservative solutions.
“I am honored to be recognized for conservative leadership — which is the key reason the Texas Miracle continues to thrive,” Nelson said. “Conservatives understand that for Texas to succeed, we must be fiscally disciplined, keep taxes low and maintain a smart regulatory climate that allows businesses to grow and prosper.”
A coalition of concerned grassroots activists and business leaders, the Conservative Roundtable of Texas wants the state to remain a leader for job creation and quality of life through low taxes, a predictable regulatory environment, a reliable infrastructure, and a limited, transparent and efficient government.
Nelson represents District 12, including portions of Tarrant and Denton counties. She is Chairman of the Senate Finance Committee and the highest-ranking Republican in the Texas Senate.
