Battle Over Bills Continues

The League worked hard through the 85th session of the Texas Legislature, testifying, calling and emailing legislators to make sure bills the League opposed did not get passed. But now the special session is open, and many of those bills will be back on the agenda.  San Antonio Area League President Madhu Sridhar reminds us the work begins again. Read her message  HERE.
