State Representative Carl Isett resigns early

LUBBOCK, TX (KCBD) - Texas State Representative Carl Isett announced his plans to vacate his House Seat in the Texas Legislature effective May 31st.

In a news release from Isett, it states that he decided to vacate the seat early because "...that with at least three new members headed to Austin from the South Plains and the Panhandle, it only makes sense to give every advantage possible to those new members."

"If Governor Perry calls a special election, and John Frullo can prevail, he will have the seniority of a second term representative. And if he can dive into the Appropriations process in my stead, he will have a much larger role in the next legislative session," said Isett.

The legislature is preparing to address a budget shortfall that some predict could be as high as $18 billion.

Isett also said that he is scheduled to travel extensively through the next several months for training and serving in the United States Navy as well as for his professional career.

Originally elected in 1996, Isett has served Lubbock in the state house for seven terms.
