Join us for the McAllen Chamber Government Affairs Council meeting with State Representative Terry Canales on Thursday, April 29, from 11:00 a.m. to 12:00 noon via Zoom. Representative Canales will give council members an update on the 87th Legislative Session and discuss his priorities this session.
Representative Canales was elected to the House of Representatives in 2012 to represent District 40, which encompasses the heart of Hidalgo County. The cities within District 40 include Edinburg (Hidalgo County Seat), Elsa, North Pharr, San Carlos, La Blanca, Faysville, and portions of McAllen and Weslaco.
In 2021, Representative Terry Canales was re-appointed by Texas Speaker of the House Dade Phelan to serve as Chairman of the powerful House Transportation Committee, the first Latino to hold that position. This is Chairman Canales’ second consecutive session chairing the committee. As the Chair of the House Transportation Committee, Canales oversees Texas’ highways, airways, waterways, and railways, which are vital to the economic prosperity of the fastest-growing state in the nation.
