Legislative Watch List

Legislative Update May 5th, 2023 

MAY DAY !                      MAY DAY !                       MAY DAY !

The distress call for ships at sea and the day of solidarity for the workers of the world is very fitting for citizens and groups concerned or merely interested in legislative proceedings in Texas during the month of May of this odd-numbered year 2023…

May is the last month of the session. The state budget is not finalized with a conference committee having just been appointed by House and Senate leaders. Their first meetings will occur this coming week.

In the Texas House, 5417 bills have been filed. In the Senate 2626 bills have been filed, a total of 8,043 bills in all.

Deadlines imposed by House and Senate rules will start to take a toll on the number of bills that will pass by the end of the session, May 29, 2023. 

The first deadline occurs on May 08 which is a deadline for House Committees to report (pass) House bills. After May 08 no House bills can be voted on in House Committees. To do so would be a violation of the rules and make the legislation subject to a point of order on the House floor.

Every day following May 08 will impose similar restrictions on a variety of measures. There is a link to the deadline calendar posted below. If you have any questions, please give me a shout and I will attempt to answer or find the answer for you.
