2017 Legislative Agenda

CTD and our partners are gearing up for a lot of hard fights during Texas' 85th Legislative Session, which convened January 10. Children's issues like Medicaid therapies and special education; accessible transportation and texting while driving; and sufficient funding for community services are just a few of areas we're targeting at the Capitol this spring.

Learn a little (or a lot) more about what we're working on:

Review our full, web-based legislative agenda, which will be updated regularly throughout session, and includes links to more information about issues and opportunities to take action.

Download a quicker overview of our Top Legislative Priorities, presented at our Legislative Briefing in January. Our presentation slides (covering State Budget & Independent Living, Children's Issues, Transportation, Employment, and Access to Medicine) are also available.

View the archive of our Legislative Briefing from January 9, streamed over Facebook Live.
