Representative Lanham Lyne (R-Wichita Falls) is the TML Legislator-of-the-Month for March 2011.  Representative Lyne represents Wichita Falls, Burkburnett, Iowa Park, and Electra.

Prior to being elected to the Texas House of Representatives in 2010, Representative Lyne served as mayor of Wichita Falls from 2005 to 2010.  Representative Lyne currently serves on the powerful House Ways and Means Committee, as well as the House Committee on Environmental Regulation.

Representative Lyne is a strong supporter of cities and understands municipal issues.  Most recently, Representative Lyne defended municipal authority when the House Ways and Means Committee considered House Bill 258, which would increase the amount of the state traffic fine from $30 to $45.

We hope that city leaders across Texas – and particularly those in Representative Lyne’s district – will express their appreciation to this outstanding leader.
