The Texas


Use this tool from the Texas Tribune to find your state representative and state senator.

Just like Congress, the Texas Legislature is split into a House and Senate. You can find your House Education Committee Members here, and your Senate Education Committee Members here.

These committees conduct hearings, review, and amend bills proposed by a member of their legislative chamber. They also review bills after they have been passed by the other chamber of legislature. Remember, both chambers must pass a bill before it goes to the governor’s desk for a signature or a veto.

Please note that the Texas Legislature only holds sessions during odd-numbered years.
