Further, Leach successfully authored legislation to crack down on sexual offenders, protect the private property rights of Texas homeowners, advocate for vulnerable children in our state's foster care system, and has worked to implement meaningful reforms to address the epidemic of sexual assault on college campuses. Additionally, Leach has been a leader on the front to lower taxes, invest in critical infrastructure, improve education, strengthen our criminal justice system, secure the border, create a culture of life and to reform and improve state government operations.
