After 140 mostly productive days, the 84th regular session of the Texas Legislature is over. Members retirements and resignations are being announced, including Senator Troy Fraser, who chairs the Senate Natural Resources and Economic Development committee.

After a well-deserved break, the legislature will convene interim meetings once priorities have been established by each chamber's respective leadership and TXWRA will keep you apprised of those developments.

This session was both more and less productive than the last: more bills were filed, but the Senate passed 29% fewer measures. Not including resolutions and amendments, 6,276 bills were proposed. TXWRA Board member and General Counsel Ben Sebree prepared a post-mortem summary of bills pertinent to TXWRA, which is available to members.
