State Sen. Tommy Williams, R-The Woodlands, is resigning from the Texas Senate, he told his staff Wednesday afternoon.

Separately, Williams has been approached about a government relations position within the Texas A&M University System, sources with knowledge of the discussions told The Texas Tribune.  

Williams, a Texas A&M University alumnus, has served in the state Senate since 2003. Prior to that, he spent five years in the Texas House.

Williams is the chairman of the powerful Senate Finance Committee, and led budget negotiations in the Legislature's upper chamber. He also serves on the State Affairs, Administration and Open Government committees.

Outside of the Capitol, Williams, a CPA, has served as president of Woodforest Financial Services, an affiliate of Woodforest National Bank. He briefly considered running for comptroller earlier this year.
