The Texas Legislature Is Back In Session. What Do You Want To Know About It?

Wikipedia Commons

The 2017 Texas Legislative session is underway. State legislators meet every other year for 140 days in a frenzy of debating (sometimes arguing), deal-making, stand-taking, bill-killing and, occasionally, law-making.

We want to know what you want to know about the Legislature: how it works, why it works the way it does and what you want lawmakers to do.


So, we're bringing back a project we started last year called #TexasDecides. Leading up to the November election, we gathered your questions about voting and politics in Texas — and then put those questions to a vote. You chose the questions we answered — find those stories here.

We've teamed up with public radio stations across Texas – KUT Austin, KERA in Dallas, Houston Public Media and Marfa Public Radio — to collect and answer your questions about the Texas Legislature over the next few months.

We want your voice to be heard as we cover the state Capitol, so send us your questions!
