Get to Know Cecil Bell...
Cecil Bell Jr. is a sixth generation Texan whose family has been in the great State of Texas since 1852. He met his future wife and soon to be high school sweetheart Jo Ann at the 1979 National Meeting of the Beta Club Honor Society. The Bells moved to Magnolia, Texas in 1993 and became active in the community soon after arriving.
He and Jo Ann have two boys, Cecil “Trey” III and Charlie. The Bell family attends the Magnolia Church of Christ where Cecil serves as the Deacon of Fellowship.
Driven by his strong entrepreneurial nature, Cecil has been self employed at B-5 Construction Co., Inc. since 1983 in the business of constructing water and wastewater treatment facilities. Tejas Underground Utilities, incorporated in 1997 provides installation of underground utilities along with the other aspects traditionally associated with those features. A 2009 Ernst & Young Entrepreneur of the Year Finalist for the Southwest Region, Cecil serves as the CEO of six active enterprises providing clients with a variety of services and creating jobs for Texans.
With a pro-business, small government, States’ rights approach, Cecil believes that Government should be by the people and for the people. It should be comprised of Statesmen who represent the views and opinions of their constituency. During the 83rd Regular Session, Bell authored and successfully passed 16 bills into law. The new laws include among others, measures that establish dual credit access and technology courses, liability protection to volunteers during times of man-made or natural disasters, protect employers’ unemployment tax accounts from chargebacks associated with unemployment benefits paid to former employees who left for reasons that are “urgent, compelling and necessary”, and removing restrictive proficiency requirements for concealed handgun license holders.
Bell serves on the powerful House Appropriations Committee, the House Economic and Small Business Development Committee and the Appropriations Subcommittee on Articles VI, VII and VIII of the Appropriations Bill.
