Scott Cosper:
 Keeping His Promises, Fighting for Our Values

February 22, 2018

As a businessman, Representative Scott Cosper knows what it is like to meet a payroll. As a custom home-builder, he has created numerous good-paying jobs in Bell County. He understands how burdensome regulations increase costs and limit opportunities for families. Cosper uses these business skills to make state government more efficient. One example is his successful effort to restore more than $20 million in the state budget to Fort Hood and other installations to help defend against the negative impacts of the Base Realignment and Closure process, His skills are being noticed: he was recognized as the most powerful first-term representative by organizations closely following the events in the Capitol.

As a state representative, Cosper fights for conservative principles. He kept the promises made during his campaign and made stopping illegal immigration his top priority. He consistently voted to secure our borders. Representative Cosper was a co-sponsor of the bill to end ‘Sanctuary Cities.’ This law prohibits local jurisdictions from preventing officers from upholding any part of an immigration law, including request to detain illegal immigrants to face deportation. The law gives enforcement officers additional tools to keep our communities safe and remove dangerous immigrants from our streets.

Representative Cosper also knows how to fight for the families of service members who are deployed fighting for our conservative values. When the Fort Hood commanders asked Representative Cosper for help curtailing predatory lending practices on military families, he worked to pass a new law to stop the payday lenders from taking advantage of our troops. Because Representative Cosper acted to protect their families, our service members can fight to maintain our freedoms and conservative values with one less worry on their minds.

For Cosper, fighting for the most vulnerable of our society is a matter of faith. He is unequivocally pro-life and believes every child is a gift from God which is why he helped pass a law to ban partial-birth abortions. As a member of the Appropriations committee, he pushed to defund Planned Parenthood in the state budget and fund women’s health programs from non-abortion providers with those same funds, proving he is a defender of Life as well as a champion for taxpayers.

Representative Cosper’s philosophy is very simple and in line with our conservative principles of limited government and promoting personal and economic freedoms. He works every day to unleash the power of the free market and promote pro-business policies for Texas.
