We at the Texas Young Republicans are excited about the upcoming 85th Legislative Session. After a politically explosive 2016 where we saw an across the board win for the Republican Party, when many were in the middle of writing about its demise, we came out stronger than before and ready to champion the principles of Freedom and Limited Government; the principles this nation was founded on and what has made us great. The 85th legislative session is already gearing up to be an extremely eventful and profoundly important session.
We have surveyed our membership in order to have a clear vision on the body’s priorities moving into the 85th. We will take these results to the Governor, Lt. Governor and the Legislature and work to make sure that the voice of the Young Republicans is heard loud and clear.
If you would like to participate on our upcoming Legislation Day on February 23, 2017 to Austin ask you local club about details or contact us thru this page.
In the past months, we surveyed our Young Republican members about important issues in Texas. These issues included Civil Liberties & Local Control, Firearms/2nd Amendment, Life & Abortion, Immigration, Marriage, Drugs & Alcohol, among others. These issues are important to Texas Young Republicans, and other Texans alike. We ask that our elected Representatives and Senators take these opinions into consideration when various bills come forward. Young Republicans are the Leaders of the Next Generation who want to see steps toward Liberty and Prosperity taken in the 85th Legislative Session.
