About Senator Johnson

Elected with strong bipartisan support in 2018, Senator Nathan Johnson represents the economically and demographically diverse Senate District 16, which comprises the northern part of Dallas County. 

Johnson graduated magna cum laude with a degree in physics from the University of Arizona, and earned his law degree from the University of Texas at Austin. He practices law in the Trial Practice Group at the law firm of Thompson & Knight. He has also composed music for the classical concert stage and scored the hit television series Dragon Ball Z. 

Like business and civic leaders throughout Texas, Johnson pursues policies that foster economic expansion and broaden opportunity, including fiscally responsible investment in public education, health, and infrastructure. 

Johnson passed 22 bills into law during his first legislative session, all with bipartisan support. He earned a reputation for being a quick study who convenes and considers the views of diverse constituencies, and pursues creative public policy solutions. His emphasis on improving the health of Texans prompted him to author and support a number of healthcare initiatives, ranging from medical coding to Medicaid expansion, with much in between. Post-session, Johnson is developing legislative strategies to improve the care, lower costs, and improve the healthcare system in Texas.
