August 2011 Newsletter
The 82nd Legislative Session and the First Called Special Session of the 82nd Legislature are behind us. Many have described the regular session as one of the most difficult in the history of Texas.
I am now preparing for the 83rd Legislature. During the interim, committees consider Interim Charges. Interim Charges are issues that were either brought up during the regular session or bills that were considered by a committee, but could not be resolved because more information and discovery was needed. Consequently, the Speaker of the House asked members to submit ideas to be considered in length by those committees to be further reviewed while the Legislature is not in regular session. Based on recommendation from members, Interim Charges will be issued.
Our first Town Hall Meeting for District 27 is upcoming and I hope to see many of you there to share your thoughts and recommendations on matters to be considered in the 83rd Legislature.
It is a privilege to serve you. Please call or email our office if I or my staff may be of assistance.
