About Representative Collier

Representative Nicole Collier is the first woman to represent House District 95 in Tarrant County. In November 2018, she was re-elected to her fourth term in office.

In the 86th Texas Legislature, Representative Collier was appointed to serve as chair of the Criminal Jurisprudence Committee and vice-chair of the House's General Investigating Committee, and was re-appointed to the Business & Industry Committee. 

Her appointment as chair of the Criminal Jurisprudence Committee makes Representative Collier the first woman in Texas history to serve in that capacity since the committee’s formation in 1879.

The Texas Legislative Black Caucus re-elected Representative Collier as the first vice-chair in 2018. Moreover, since first elected, she has introduced legislation including banning the sale of e-cigarettes to minors, expanding eligibility for health care under the Affordable Care Act, creating more opportunities for Historically Underutilized Businesses (HUBs), increasing consumer protections under third-party debt collection practices in Texas and providing earned paid leave to Texas workers.
