SPECIAL SESSION & ARPA: The 3rd special session began Monday, September 20th and can last a maximum of 30 days. In addition to the legislature providing input into how the 16 billion in ARPA funds may be distributed, the legislature is taking up redistricting. The Governor has several other items on his “call” for this special session and if the legislature does not complete the work issued on the Governor’s call, a 4th special session could be called.

LOBBY DAY: TAHC&H is quickly organizing an in-person and virtual lobby day for September 28th. We invite anyone who can travel to Austin to join us in person, but understand this is short notice. If you aren’t able to travel, participating virtually is a great way to contribute.
