Legislative Visits


Each program should designate a Capitol Day Lead who should schedule office visits with your program’s legislators. Programs which share legislators should coordinate office visits to avoid duplicate visits. Once office visits are scheduled, your Capitol Day Lead should email Texas CASA Legislative Advocacy Coordinator Ann Strauser Palmer at and inform her of your program’s office visit schedule.
