What’s happening Wednesday in the Texas Legislature

January 9, 2019

Wednesday marks day two of the Texas Legislature. The second day is mostly ceremonial and procedural as the new session gets its legs, but there are several events planned. Here’s what to expect:

ADVICE FOR LAWMAKERS: At noon the Sunset Advisory Commission — which advises lawmakers on how state agencies can be improved — will convene for a final vote on recommendations to the 86th Legislature. Agencies under review include the Texas Windstorm Insurance Association, the State Office of Risk Management, and the Texas Alcoholic Beverage Commission. The meeting will be held in E1.028 of the Capitol Building’s extension. View the agenda here.

CONSERVATIVE AGENDA: The Texas Public Policy Foundation, a conservative think tank with ties to many Texas lawmakers, will begin its three-day curtain raiser for the new session at noon with a keynote luncheon featuring Texas Attorney General Ken Paxton. Multiple elected officials will then participate in panels throughout the afternoon, concluding with Lt. Gov. Dan Patrick speaking at 4:30 p.m. View the agenda here.
