85th TX Legislative Session Notes

This link is a running Legislation Watch list. The RLCTX has taken NO official position on any bills , but to support Property Tax Reform and Civil Asset Forfeiture Reform.

Generally, items in Yellow are bills that may need to be opposed. Green means possibly support. Representatives in Red are obviously Republicans, those in Blue Democrats.
