On July 18, Gov. Greg Abbott will call the 85th Texas Legislature into special session to address 20 issues. These 30 days present a historic opportunity for the Legislature to promote liberty and economic opportunity for Texans. Given the breadth of the Foundation’s research on these topics, our policy experts have quickly compiled this 2017-18 Legislator’s Guide to the Issues – Special Session Edition. We organized this edition around what we consider the three main themes of the special session:

  • Empowering Texas Families 
  • Defending Local Liberty
  • Promoting Statewide Reform
