|Texas Committee Assignments, 2013|
|• Government Efficiency & Reform|
|• Human Services|
Turner's website highlighted the following campaign themes:
- Jobs for Texans
- Excerpt: "To provide good jobs and a strong economy, we must provide an environment that is business friendly: low taxes; limited, fair and predictable regulation; and a legal system uncluttered with frivolous lawsuits."
- Stand for Fiscal Responsibility
- Excerpt: "Texans are taxed enough already! We must take better inventory of the money that’s being spent in funding of current programs. We must end accounting gimmicks, tricks and diversions."
- ObamaCare is Not Right for Texas
- Excerpt: "If left unchecked, ObamaCare has the potential to bankrupt Texas. Texans should be able to choose their own health care provider and make their own medical choices, not have our health care decisions micromanaged by Washington, D.C."
- Stop Illegal Immigration
- Excerpt: "Illegal Immigration is draining the budgets of Texas taxpayers and Texas state government. We need to tighten our borders to stop the flow of illegals. We are a nation which welcomes those who follow the rules, respect our laws, and come here legally, but I have no tolerance for those who undermine the rule of law by entering our nation in an illegal fashion."
