Cheryl Williams believes in following not only the rule of law, but also the spirit of the law. She was instrumental in working with our State Legislators in Austin to pass legislation that stops immigrants from continuing to exploit the indigent healthcare system. This will save Collin County taxpayers more than $1 million annually. Cheryl’s testimony in favor of House Bill 655 helped close a loophole in state rules that allowed legal aliens to qualify for indigent health care from the county even when they have sponsors with the means to support them financially. Now people who sponsor immigrants coming into our country must also accept responsibility for their health care costs.
There has been significant overreach by some cities in the county as they try to extend their permitting powers outside their city limits. Cheryl believes in private property rights and will continue to defend the rights of private property owners in the unincorporated areas of the county against illegal government regulation.
