“I am proud to work with NFP to bring these much needed services to Polk, Jasper, Newton, Hardin, and Tyler counties. Women in my district are in peril due to the lack of proper services and it is imperative that we draw down these funds that have been allocated,” said Rep. White. “I have consistently voted for pro-life and pro-women’s health measures on the House Floor. I will continue to work with NFP and our Texas Health & Human Services Commission to ensure that we have solutions to solve these problems. I urge Southeast Texans to attend this very important town hall meeting.”
