Nathan Johnson
State Senator - District 16

Elected with bipartisan support in 2018, Senator Nathan Johnson became the first Democrat to represent Senate District 16 in three decades. He continues to lead the legislative effort to expand Medicaid in Texas. Johnson's “Live Well Texas” plan garnered bipartisan support and would provide health insurance coverage to one million uninsured Texans, a plurality of which are Latino. He played a key role in the 87th Legislature’s responses to winter storm Uri, and has passed laws that make private health insurance more affordable, streamline regulatory procedures, revise counterproductive criminal penalties, and various bills to address the local needs of District 16.
