Joe has returned to the 83rd Session of the Texas House of Representatives after serving in the 81st Legislative Session as the youngest legislator in the State of Texas. During that session, Joe worked effectively for the benefit of west and northeast El Paso, Canutillo, Vinton, and Anthony. He served on the Criminal Jurisprudence Committee, where he worked on criminal justice issues, and the Committee on Border and Intergovernmental Affairs, which addressed immigration and border security.

During the 83rd session, Joe has had the pleasure of returning to the Criminal Jurisprudence Committee, as well as serving on the Select Committee on Criminal Procedure, where he continues to advocate for the rights of crime victims and promotes smart criminal justice responses and procedure reforms. He is also a member of the Local and Consent Calendars Committee, where he helps vet a wide array of local issues from across the state. Some of the work that Joe has been most proud of, though, has been on the Defense and Veterans Affairs Committee, where he has been fighting to preserve veterans benefits and ease the burdens our brave soldiers face as they return home to Texas after their service.
