Ryan Guillen (born October 27, 1977) is the Texas State Representative for House District 31, which includes Starr, Atascosa, Duval, Brooks, Jim Hogg, Kenedy, La Salle, Live Oak, McMullen and Willacy counties. A Democrat and native of Starr County, Guillen was first elected in 2002.

Representative Ryan Guillen (D) serves House District 31 in the Texas Legislature. Beginning in 2003 with the 78th Session, he has served for five consecutive regular sessions and eight special sessions in the House of Representatives. Representative Guillen and his wife Dalinda were raised in Rio Grande City where they attended public school. He completed his education with a B.S. degree from Texas A&M University in College Station. His family includes many generations of teachers and ranchers, traditions that he continues.

Early life and career[edit]

Ryan Guillen was born in College Station, Texas, where his parents attended college. While he was still an infant, his family moved back to their home town of Rio Grande City. Guillen was raised in Starr County where he went to school with his future wife, Dalinda. They attended public and private schools in Rio Grande City and later both graduated from Texas A&M University. Guillen was a rancher, educator, and small businessman in Starr County when he was elected to the Texas legislature. Guillen and his wife welcomed their first daughter, Cinco Demi Guillen, in 2010, and their second daughter, Viva Bonita Guillen, this past April.

Texas State Legislature[edit]

Representative Guillen took office in January 2003, following his election in 2002. He has been reelected four times. He is currently serving his fifth consecutive term in the Texas Legislature, including five regular sessions and eight special sessions. During this time he has served on several committees.

During the 78th Legislative Session, Guillen served on the Select Election Contests Committee, the Land and Resource Management Committee, the Select Public School Finance Committee, and the Regulated Industries Committee.

In the 79th Legislative Session, Guillen served on the Appropriations Committee, which constructs the state's budget. He also served as a member of the Appropriations Select Committee on Education, the Select Committee on Election Contests, and served as Budget and Oversight Chair of the Financial Institutions Committee.

In the 80th Legislative Session, Guillen served as Vice Chair of the Appropriations Committee, the Natural Resources Committee and the Calendars Committee which chooses the bills that will be heard for debate. He also served on the Select Committee on Higher and Public Education Finance.

In the 81st Legislative Session, Guillen served on the Border and Intergovernmental Affairs Committee, the Oversight of Windstorm Insurance Committee, the Transportation Committee and the Select Committee on Transportation Funding.

In the 82nd Legislative session, Guillen served as Chairman of the Committee on Culture, Recreation and Tourism. He also served as a member of the Public Education Committee, the Oversight of Windstorm Insurance Committee, and the Select Election Contest Committee.

In January 2014 Texas Right to life has rated Rep Guillen a 71 percent Pro Life up from 48 percent in 2011.[1]

Legislative Achievements[edit]

During the 80th Legislature, Guillen favored the expansion of the Texas Children's Health Plan (CHIP), which provides affordable quality health coverage for children. He helped pass the expansion of CHIP to include funding for vision, dental, mental and home health, and hospice services. Guillen also helped pass a bill that allows for the issuance of up to $500 million in general obligation bonds for student loans, more than doubling the previous allowance.

During the 81st Legislative Session, he filed and passed legislation creating a drainage district to protect Starr County residents from flood waters. He favored the expansion of CHIP funding for vision, dental, mental and home health, and hospice services.

In the 82nd Legislature, despite steep budget cuts Guillen successfully filed and passed more bills than any other Representative in the Texas House. He fought against cuts to education funding and passed bills improving public safety and government efficiency.

The threat of violence from across the border has always been a concern for Representative Guillen. He worked to pass the $110 million Border Security measure and represents the Texas House of Representatives as a member of the Border Legislative Conference. The conference brings together legislators from ten U.S. and Mexico border states to address environmental issues, resolve problems, and leverage economic opportunities for the hard-working families on both sides of the border.

Representative Guillen was instrumental in providing $13 million and adding 181 new employees to the Texas Veterans Commission for veteran job training. Another bill he supported exempted veterans of conflicts related to the September 11, 2001 World Trade Center attacks from paying tuition for state universities.

Guillen believes student potential is dependent on family, community, and teachers; therefore the representative filed a bill for the fiscal security of the teacher retirement fund and supported higher teacher salaries. Guillen has also worked toward allowing community colleges to offer four-year degrees and "reach out" to high school students in need of career and technical training.
