Nathan Johnson, Texas State Senate
State Senator Nathan Johnson represents almost a million people in Texas’s Senate District 16, a commercially and culturally vibrant district that sprawls throughout Dallas County. He is a leading voice on the electrical grid, healthcare, governmental transparency, and criminal justice.
As a member of the Senate Committee on Business & Commerce, Johnson played a crucial role in the 88th session’s legislation to address the sufficiency, sustainability, and resiliency of Texas’s power generation and distribution systems. He also serves on the Senate Committees on Jurisprudence (Vice Chair); Water, Agriculture & Rural Affairs; and Administration.
In the most recent legislative session, Johnson authored over 150 bills, joint-authored or
sponsored nearly 100 more, and sent 49 of them to the Governor’s desk for signature. Aiming
to ensure that Texans never again lose critical services due to power failure, Johnson devised
and secured nearly $2B for the development and deployment of backup power systems for
essential community services throughout the state.
