Activity Increases as Texas Legislative Session Nears End


The 84th Regular Session of the Texas Legislature ends on June 1st.  As the session wraps up, there is a great deal of activity taking place.  If you want to follow all the action and see which bills have passed or failed, there are a couple of great resources you can try:

Texas Tribune’s Texas Legislative Guide – This resource provides news stories regarding legislative action on a number of issues such as budget and taxes, energy, health and human services, higher education, and immigration and border security.  You can also use the website to browse bills by category as well as by sponsor or committee.  

Texas Legislature Online – The legislature’s website also provides a wealth of information regarding Texas bills.  You can search for bills on various topics or you can look up a bill by number.  Once you find the bill you want, you can read the text, view its status to see if it has been passed, or see an up-to-date list of the actions taken on the bill.
