To date nearly 1,400 bills have been filed by state House members, and
another 400 have been filed by state senators. Our LWV-Texas state issue
chairs are following the filed bills closely as you can see by accessing their
weekly blogs at LWV Texas > Advocacy & Issues > All
Our state-level priority issues are Redistricting and Voting Rights. Our urgent
issues are: Air Quality & Climate Change, Health Care for Low Income and
Elderly Texans, and Women’s Health. Twenty-seven additional issues are
listed important, including Drug Laws (chaired by our own Elaine Talarski),
for which several bills relaxing cannabis laws have been filed, and Public
Education (chaired by our own Diann Andy), which includes several
proposals to add civics instruction to the required curriculum.
