Process to Develop CASA Legislative Priorities for 2019 Begins – We Need Your Input!

Texas CASA staff has begun the process of soliciting input and suggestions to develop our Legislative Priorities for the 86th Legislature, which convenes Jan. 8, 2019.

Texas CASA seeks broad input from CASA volunteers, program staff, board members and other interested parties to develop our priorities for each session of the legislature. Suggested priorities are presented to the Public Policy Committee of the Texas CASA Board and ultimately approved by the full Board.

Many issues and problems are not able to be solved through legislative action, but some can only be resolved this way. We encourage everyone think about and discuss these issues. Some priority items are very specific, while others provide a broad mandate or policy direction to help guide Public Affairs staff during ongoing discussions and debate during a legislative session. For reference, see our Legislative Priorities from the 85th Legislative Session.

Please send any thoughts or suggestions to the Public Affairs team at
