Brian Babin

Representing the 36th district of Texas
Dr. Babin became involved in politics by supporting Ronald Reagan for President in 1980 as the Reagan County Chairman of Tyler County. Since that time he has worked to turn what had previously been a heavily Democrat region Republican by building a conservative voting base and encouraging and supporting good local candidates to run as Republicans.

His service on the House Transportation and Infrastructure Committee affords him the opportunity to address the critical ports, highways, rails and pipelines that provide thousands of jobs and fuel a hub of economic activity that includes more petrochemical refining facilities than any district in the country.

Dr. Babin was also appointed to the House Committee on Science, Space and Technology. Serving as the Ranking Member of the House Subcommittee on Space he is able to serve as a national leader for America’s space policy matters of NASA and represent the interests of Johnson Space Center also located in the district. As a member of the Subcommittee on Environment, Babin has helped lead efforts to bring transparency and accountability to the EPA, which has threatened our petrochemical and agricultural interests with excessive regulation.
