Texas Legislative Session

What’s Coming Up in Austin

The DRC sets and advocates for its 2017 Legislative Agenda to keep DFW’s business environment strong and support economic growth. Keeping our members engaged and updated on key developments during the 2017 legislative process plus the involvement in and commitment to our legislative priorities will drive our success in Austin.

DRC’s 2017 Legislative Agenda

Metro 8 Legislative Agenda

Pro-Growth Legislative Accountability Index

During the 85th Legislative Session, the Dallas Regional Chamber and Fort Worth Chamber of Commerce tracked the voting records of every member of the North Texas delegation on legislation critical to our priorities on our Pro-Growth Legislative Accountability Index. The Index only included bills that are tied to priority issues for both the Dallas and Fort Worth Chambers, and were considered on the Senate or House floor.

Because it is our responsibility to keep our chamber members and community partners informed on the legislative issues that impact the North Texas business climate, we monitored votes and kept our members abreast of developments related to pro-growth legislation. If you would like a copy of the legislative agenda, please contact the DRC’s Public Policy Team to request one.
