On January 8th, 2013, the 83rd Texas Legislative session began. During this time, members of the House and Senate vote on a variety of bills to add, amend, and repeal Texas laws.

It is possible to search for bills on the Texas Legislature Web site. Also available on that site are video broadcasts of House and Senate proceedings, information on votes for the House and Senate, information on how a bill becomes law, and a glossary to define particular terms.
