    Outcomes From the 2019 Legislative Session

    The Texas Legislature adjourned sine die—or “without assigning a day for future meeting”—on Monday, May 27 after passing more than a thousand bills. Governor Greg Abbott has until June 16 to veto any legislation that he does not want to become law. Overall, we feel like it has been a good session for our community. While our senior SNAP simplification bill did not pass, multiple bills passed that will improve child care standards in Texas, including SB 568 and SB 569. Additional funding was secured for child abuse prevention programs ($1.5 million to H.O.P.E.S and $2.9 million to Nurse-Family Partnership) above funding to maintain current caseloads. Many thanks to you, all of our advocates, and our local and statewide allies for working with us throughout the session to keep these issues top of the legislators' minds! We also greatly appreciate all of our legislators for their dedication and commitment to the state, and for having to making tough decisions in the best interest of their constituents!
