Rep. Patricia Harless District 126 (R-Spring)
Sources of Income
Harless and her husband own a Houston auto dealership, Fred Fincher Motors.
She is the former vice president of Radam Inc., the holding company for Fincher Motors, and was a board member for SJH Real Estate, which holds the real estate for her auto dealership.

In February 2012, Harless was one of 15 Republicans to receive an illegal contribution from the political action committee for Waste Control Specialists, which is owned by Dallas billionaire Harold Simmons. Harless returned the donation.
Harless has supported legislation that could potentially help used-car dealers. She sponsored SB 1035, vetoed by Perry in 2011, which would have set up more registration demands for title companies in an effort to weed out fraud in motor vehicle titling. SB 266, which she sponsored, and which was signed by the governor that same year, forces holders of liens on motor vehicles to provide notice to all former owners/lien-holders of a vehicle.
