Solution: Saved Local Taxpayers Millions
To protect the taxpayer, I am always seeking out ways to eliminate waste, fraud, and abuse in government. One such example came from here in Collin County where, working with the Commissioner's Court and other local leaders, I authored and passed legislation preventing healthcare fraud and abuse, saving local taxpayers millions.
The problem we identified was a significant loophole that allowed for resident legal aliens, with financial means and U.S. citizen sponsors, to receive free taxpayer-funded healthcare. In the 82nd legislature, I authored and passed three pieces of legislation that closed this loophole with overwhelming bipartisan support. Overnight we saw this problem go away and Collin County taxpayers saved millions of dollars as a result!
