88th Texas Legislative Session Index
The 88th Texas Legislature concluded its regular session Monday, May 29, 2023. During the session, the DRC tracked how local legislators voted on issues that impact the region’s pro-business, pro-growth priorities in the following areas:
- Preserving Texans’ economic success
- Investing in Texas’ workforce
- Supporting a healthy talent pool
- Promoting a high quality of life for all
The DRC partnered with the Fort Worth Chamber to compile the results in a Legislative Index designed to help our members and the North Texas business community understand how our elected officials represented the Dallas Region’s interests in Austin.
VOTER ENGAGEMENT TOOLKIT
Businesses have an essential role to play in advocating for increased civic engagement in the Dallas Region, especially as our population continues to grow. In response to our member companies’ need for resources informing employees about voting and elections in Texas, the DRC has created a Voter Engagement Toolkit. The Public Policy team will continually update the toolkit throughout various elections cycles, and we hope you’ll take advantage of the variety of resources we have created and join us in this important civic effort.
