Last spring, a series of engage! classes met Feb. 12 – March 5 to discuss the 85th Texas State Legislature session.
The first class in our series featured a Q&A with State Representative Tony Dale and Williamson County Commissioner Cynthia Long. Rep. Dale talked about his background and how he got involved in politics, provided an overview of the Texas State Legislative process and highlighted the major issues being addressed this session.
In Week 2, we learned about the 85th State Legislature’s online resources, how to access information and how to follow a bill through the legislative process.
Week 3 featured guest speakers from Texas Values and Concerned Women of America, who discussed the challenges to religious freedoms in today’s political climate.
Week 4 featured specific steps for becoming Engaged at the State Capitol.
