TASB Legislative Advisory Council

The Legislative Advisory Council (LAC) is responsible for melding the regional advocacy priorities developed during the TASB Grassroots Meetings into one list of statewide advocacy priorities to be included in the TASB Advocacy Agenda.

The LAC meets twice in the spring of even-numbered years to draft its statewide priorities and elect four members to serve on the TASB Board's Legislative Committee. 2018 dates TBD.

After a regular session of the Texas Legislature, TASB’s bylaws require that the LAC meet to review legislative action on TASB’s Advocacy Agenda Priorities. The LAC may offer changes to or repeal priorities adopted the preceding year by the annual Delegate Assembly or offer a new priority.  Any changes the LAC makes to TASB’s Advocacy Agenda will be submitted to TASB’s Legislative Committee prior to TASB’s summer board meeting.

Please note that costs associated with attending the LAC meetings will be borne by a trustee's school district and not TASB.

Purpose: Refine the statewide list of legislative priorities to recommend to the TASB Legislative Committee; elect four LAC representatives to serve on the TASB Legislative Committee for a term of two years.
