The president gives the State of The Union, the governor gives the State of the State, and we give you the State of the Taxpayer. What did your state lawmakers change during the legislative session, and what will it mean for you as a Texas taxpayer?

Join the Texas Public Policy Foundation in your city as our experts offer a non-partisan update and straight forward answers to your most pressing questions. Come learn what changes to expect and how they will affect you and your neighbors. We’ll also discuss the work ahead to keep Texas free, prosperous, and filled with opportunity.

A complimentary lunch will be provided for in-person attendees.*  The State of the Taxpayer Tour is sponsored by the Lone Star Legacy Society.
