The 85th Session of the Texas Legislature begins January 10th

The Texas Legislature convenes every two years at the Capitol in Austin. This year, the 85th Regular Session of the Legislature begins on January 10th, 2017. The Regular Session lasts for 140 days and ends on May 29th, 2017. The library often receives questions from Texans about the Legislature, pending bills and resolutions, and related issues, so we've put together a list of resources below that might be helpful.

It can be difficult to understand certain aspects of the legislative process, so if you have questions, don't hesitate to Ask a Librarian!
