REP. TRACY KING

Texas State Representative

Introduced House Bill 1325 to Legalize Hemp in Texas

Tracy O. King graduated from Texas A&M University, where he earned a Bachelor of Science in Agricultural Engineering. In 1983 Representative King took a job with the Beltone Hearing Aid Center in San Antonio and soon after moved to Uvalde to open a branch office there. He later purchased the Beltone Hearing Aid Center and owned and operated it until 2008 when he sold the business to spend more time with his family.

Representative King has always been active in public service, a former member of the Board of Trustees for the First United Methodist Church and a past president of both the Kiwanis Club and the Texas Hearing Aid Association. He is the Chairman of the powerful House Licensing and Administrative Procedures Committee, and a member of the Natural Resources Committee. He also serves as a member of the Edwards Aquifer Legislative Oversight Committee and the Energy Council.

During his tenure in the Texas House of Representatives he has served on committees such as Appropriations, Ways & Means, Calendars, Environmental Regulation, Land and Resource Management, Agriculture and Livestock, Border and International Affairs, and Culture, Recreation and Tourism.
