A Conversation with State Reps. Biedermann & Isaac


The Texas Tribune will host a free, open-to-the-public lunchtime event — A Conversation with Reps. Biedermann & Isaac — at 11:30 a.m., Tuesday, Dec. 12, at Texas State University in San Marcos. Evan Smith will moderate.
Biedermann, R-Fredericksburg, has represented House District 73 since 2017. He sits on the House County Affairs and Juvenile Justice & Family Issues committees. He also owns and operates Biedermann’s Ace Hardware in Fredericksburg. Biedermann recently was in the news for his opposition to a $12.6 million bond measure in Fredericksburg, including creating an anonymous Facebook page.
Isaac, R-Dripping Springs, has represented House District 45 since 2011. He sits on the House Energy Resources and Urban Affairs committees. Isaac has been active in water regulation legislation, sponsoring Senate Bill 1198 in the 85th legislative session, which converted the Hays public utility agency into a water authority. He also recently announced he would be running for U.S. Congress in 2018 to fill the seat of retiring U.S. Rep. Lamar Smith.
The discussion will be followed by an audience Q&A session. A light lunch will be provided. The conversation will be livestreamed at texastribune.org/livestream, and the video will be available for viewing afterward. For media RSVP, contact Natalie Choate at nchoate@texastribune.org. General registration is open at texastribune.org/events.
This event will be held in the J. Garland Warren Room, located in the End Zone Complex of Bobcat Stadium on the Texas State University campus. The event is free, open to the public and includes a light lunch. Complimentary visitor parking is available in the parking lot surrounding the stadium.
