Tucker Anderson is a licensed Texas attorney who spent five years in Washington serving as Legislative Director, Rules Committee Associate, and Counsel to U.S. Congressman Pete Sessions (R-Dallas), current Chairman of the House Rules Committee. Since his time on the Hill, Tucker has personally stood for election as a Republican candidate for both the U.S. House of Representatives and the Texas Legislature. Today, he uses his education and experience on behalf of Code 3 Emergency Partners, LLC, counseling company leadership in its effort to successfully navigate business through the confluence of law, politics, and legislative procedure.
As Chairman Sessions’ Legislative Director, Mr. Anderson was responsible for coordinating federal funding priorities for the City of Dallas, including the Dallas Floodway Extension Project, the build-out of the DART system, and support for local defense contractors. This position also put Mr. Anderson in charge of defining legislative processes and drafting necessary language to enact the Congressman’s priorities into law. A staff leader among the Texas delegation in statewide transportation policy, Tucker also directed federal funding priorities through the TEX-21 Congressional Caucus.
Prior to Congressman Sessions’ ascension to the Chairmanship of the House Rules Committee, Mr. Anderson also served as his Rules Associate. In this role, Mr. Anderson was responsible for drafting amendments for floor consideration, coordinating committee tactics, preparing the Congressman’s remarks, and managing floor debate. Mr. Anderson also served as Congressman Sessions’ Staff Assistant in his role as Vice-Chairman of the U.S. House’s inaugural Post-9/11 Cybersecurity and Infrastructure Protection Subcommittee, and was responsible for directing a large-scale upgrade to Dallas’ public safety communications capability through a grant award from the U.S. Department of Homeland Security.
Tucker departed Capitol Hill in 2005 and returned home to Calvert, Texas to seek the Republican nomination in the newly redrawn 17th Congressional District, and his campaign was both endorsed by the Dallas Morning News and featured in The Economist. Seven years later, with the encouragement of Limestone County GOP Chairman Lance Phillips, Tucker stood once again for election – this time to the Texas Legislature, losing in a run-off by less than one percentage-point.
Beginning in 2014, Tucker began focusing full-time on emergency medicine law and policy as the Executive Director of the State Association of Freestanding Emergency Rooms. Since then, Tucker’s practice has centered on administering a state political action committee, defining legal and regulatory structures governing the independent practice of emergency medicine on both the state and federal levels, generating data, developing policy positions, lobbying state and federal agencies and legislatures, provides public testimony, and coordinating with allied trade associations and outside counsel to advise company leadership on how lawmaking and regulatory climates impact business.
Today, Tucker is proud and honored to put his education and experience to work representing Code 3 Emergency Partners, LLC, the industry leader in an ever-evolving landscape for freestanding emergency medical care facilities, and looks forward to working every day and coordinating on every level of government to make sure Code 3’s patients have ever-improving access to top-quality emergency and urgent care.
Mr. Anderson received his Bachelor of Arts degree in History from Texas A&M University, and his Juris Doctorate from St. Mary’s University School of Law. He currently resides in Dallas with his wife and daughter.
