"For the past sixteen years, we have watched you push back against those who, with no regard for property rights or the overall health of our economy, continue to attempt to weaken those rights. Clearly your conservative values have guided your accomplishments in balancing federal regulatory requirements with the needs of a healthy business climate. The eighty-plus families comprising the membership of the Central Texas Cattleman's Association could not have stayed in business without your help. Central Texas Cattleman's Association and the state of Texas have greatly benefited from your leadership in this important policy arena and will continue to do so in the future."
Brandon Belt, Central Texas Cattlemen's Assocation President
