Texas Legislature set to convene - how to contact your lawmakers

The 86th Texas Legislative Session begins tomorrow, although lawmakers have been filing bills since early November. Among the big items expected to be on the legislative agenda this session are school finance and property tax reform. A new speaker of the house will be selected since former Speaker Joe Strauss is no longer in the Texas House.

His Senate District 3 covers much of East Texas, including all of Liberty County. Sen. Nichols’ Austin office phone number is 512-463-0103 while he can be reached by fax at 512-463-1526. District 18 State Representative Ernest Bailes serves all of Liberty, San Jacinto and Walker counties. Rep. Bailes can be reached in Austin by phone at 512-463-0570 or by fax at 512-463-0315. As for those who represent Chambers County in the Texas Legislature, District 4 State Senator Brandon Creighton serves all of Chambers and Jefferson counties plus part of Harris, Galveston and Montgomery counties. Sen. Creighton’s Austin office phone number is 512-463-0104 while the fax number is 512-463-6373. Newly elected District 23 State Representative is Mayes Middleton of Wallisville.

The 140-day regular session begins tomorrow and concludes on Monday, May 27.
