Otto named to House committees

State Rep. John Otto

DAYTON— State Representative John Otto (R-Dayton), a CPA serving in his fourth term in the Texas Legislature, has been selected by Speaker of the House Joe Straus to serve on two major House committees – the House Committee on Appropriations, which sets the budget for all state programs and agencies, and as Vice Chair on the House Committee on Ways and Means, which hears issues affecting tax policy in the state. Both committee assignments are considered high profile and have a significant impact on how the business of Texas operates.
“I am thrilled Speaker Straus has entrusted these important committee assignments to me again,” Rep. Otto said. “I will be able to focus my efforts on ensuring we pass a balanced budget without burdening Texas citizens with tax increases during this difficult budgetary cycle.”
“I am pleased that Representative Otto will again serve as the Vice Chair of the House Ways and Means Committee and as a member of the Appropriations committee,” Speaker Straus said.
