The right to self-defense, as enshrined in the Second Amendment, is a fundamental human right. Sid Miller has spent his career fighting for our rights. As a State Representative and as a statewide elected leader, he has advocated for Constitutional Carry, maximum freedom, and minimum government interference in our enjoyment of this right.
Nothing is more essential, more fundamental, more universal than the right to life. Sid believes that the most important function of government is to defend the life, liberty, and property of its citizens. Abortion is murder and any government that permits, none less legally enshrines murder in its laws has no legitimacy.
Ronald Reagan said, “If you want more of something, subsidize it. If you want less of something, tax it.” Today Texas taxes home ownership under threat of forfeiture. You do not own your property, the state of Texas does. This has profound negative effects on farmers and ranchers, as well as suburban families and small business owners. This tax system is fundamentally flawed and unfair and must be repealed. Texas is not a high tax state, which is good. Texas is not a smart tax state either and that’s bad. We must reform property taxes in Texas!
Religious faith is the cornerstone of our culture and our humanity. Sid Miller protested church closings during the pandemic and strongly supports the Texas Constitutional Amendment to protect houses of worship from politicians in the future.
Sid Miller is the first statewide elected Republican leader to advocate for a robust, patient-centric approach to cannabis.

Science and experience tell us that this medicine changes lives. It should be available to every Texan with a need. Sid will continue to be a leading advocate for compassionate use in Texas.
Strengthening the supply chain
During the pandemic, Sid Miller took aggressive action to make it easier to get domestic and imported goods – from central American fruits to toilet paper – onto Texas grocery shelves. He continues this work to assure that Americans never again face shortages of essential goods.
Country of origin labeling
Consumers have a right to know what they are buying and from where. Sid Miller strongly and consistently advocates for country of origin labeling of all imported food so that Texans can make choices based on their wants, needs, and values.
Fighting for Texas Agriculture
Preserving and protecting Texas water
Without water, there is no agriculture. Without water, there is no economy. Without water, there is no life. Water is the most essential substance in the world and Texas is running out of it!
The Great Texas Water Plan is Sid Miller’s response.
In his next term, Commissioner Miller will be focused on educating and advocating for a water “moon shot.”
Selling Texas to the World
Since first being elected as Texas Agriculture Commissioner, Sid Miller has traveled the world advocating for Texas farmers, ranchers, and producers. He has helped open new markets to Texas goods from the Far East to Western Europe, South America and Africa. Our agricultural goods are on the tables of millions of new people around the world thanks to Sid!
The Go Texan! branding launched by the Texas Department of Agriculture is a massive success. It fuels our pride and our small businesses, as well as introducing consumers in Texas, America, and around the world to the superior quality and taste of our homegrown goodness!
