Texas CASA and the local CASA programs worked hard over the course of the 86th Legislative Session to pass some important legislation aimed at improving the lives of children and youth in the child welfare system. Check out our 86th Legislative Session Outcomes page for session recaps from Texas CASA and other organizations, as well as overviews of the legislation that we championed throughout the legislative session, bills that we considered a high priority for the child protection system, and other bills we supported.
In addition, join us on July 24, 2019, for a discussion with the Texas CASA Public Policy team on the outcomes of the session. Topics covered will include:
- CASA funding,
- the success of CASA legislative initiatives,
- legislation affecting child welfare in Texas,
- funding for the Department of Family and Protective Services, and
- funding and direction for Community-Based Care.
