About Bonnie Bruce:
Bonnie Bruce, who has worked at the Texas Legislature since 1999, specializes in workers’ compensation insurance policy, redistricting, and parliamentary procedure. She currently serves as the Chief of Staff for Representative Burt R. Solomons, whom she has worked for since 2001. In this capacity she has assisted the development and passage of major legislation to overhaul laws on homeowners' associations, mechanics liens, and workers' compensation, including H.B. 7 which abolished the Texas Workers' Compensation Commission and transferred its duties to the Texas Department of Insurance.

During the 82nd Legislative Session, Ms. Bruce also served as the Committee Clerk to the House Committee on Redistricting which was chaired by Representative Solomons. She assisted in drafting and negotiating the legislation for the Texas Congressional, State Board of Education, and State Senate and House districts; all four of which were passed by the Texas Legislature for the first time in 20 years.

Prior to her term in Representative Solomons’ office she was the Committee Clerk for the House Committee on Business & Industry under the direction of Representative Kim Brimer. As Committee Clerk, Ms. Bruce drafted and mediated HB 2600 which was also a workers’ compensation reform bill, as well as assisted with the Texas No-Call List legislation.

Ms. Bruce frequently teaches parliamentary procedure and lessons on the House Rules to new House staff. She lives in Round Rock, Texas with her husband and twin daughters.
