The 88th Texas Legislative Session Begins

The 88th Texas Legislative Session Begins 150 150 Elect Todd Hunter

Thank you for allowing me the privilege of once again serving the people of House District 32. I am proud to be a voice for the Coastal Bend and look forward to continuing that role during the 88th Texas Legislative Session.

The 88th Texas Legislative Session begins Tuesday, January 10th . The Texas House of Representatives swearing-in ceremony was held on the House floor at noon on January 10th. All are welcome to attend these opening day festivities. If you are unable to join us, I would like to invite you to come to Austin sometime during the 88th session and visit our Capitol office. We want you to be a part of your Texas Legislature and the decisions that are made and the impact that it may have on your daily lives. Our office is located on the first floor of the Texas Capitol building, at the room number 1W.5.

Over the past year and a half, I have been proud to help organize a number of summits and conferences in and around the Coastal Bend. These meetings provided an important opportunity to look at key issues facing the State of Texas. These meetings covered key issues such as the Mental Health, Human Trafficking, Property Taxes, and Windstorm Insurance Rates. Hearing from individuals about these important subjects and from members of our community is a very important part of the overall legislative process. The information gathered from these meetings will be helpful in addressing the issues during the upcoming 2023 legislative session.
