The 85th Session of the Texas Legislature has adjourned
TASC Creates Legislative Report Card
Although the session has ended, the responsibilities of our senators and representatives have not. Please check out our LEGISLATIVE REPORT CARD, and contact your senator and representative to let them know how you feel about their performance. All names, phone numbers, and email addresses are listed on the report cards.
Passage of a law is just the first step. Committees will be appointed to write the regulations that will provide the guidelines for facilities and surveyors to follow–and TASC will be there. Watch this page for further reports.
