2019 Session of the Texas Legislature

86th Session of the Texas Legislature

Session begins January 8, 2019

The next session of the Texas Legislature begins on January 8th 2019 (2nd Tuesday in January of odd years as per our state constitution).   Texas is one of the few states that does not meet annually.

Although bills may be filed before session begins the only advantage to pre-filing is to advertise a particular issue or a particular bill author.    There can be many versions of the “same issue” filed and all with different bill numbers, different bill authors and a different approach to the same issue.
