The Legislature of the State of Texas, operating under the biennial system, convenes its regular sessions at noon on the second Tuesday in January of odd-numbered years. The maximum duration of a regular session is 140 days. The governor is given authority under the state constitution to convene the legislature at other times during the biennium. Such sessions are known as called or special sessions and are reserved for legislation that the governor deems critically important in the conduct of state affairs. Called sessions are limited to a period of 30 days, during which the legislature is permitted to pass laws only on subjects submitted by the governor in calling for the session.

The next regular Legislative Session or the 88th session will begin on January 10, 2023 and end on May 29, 2023.  TOTA's Day at the Capitol will occur during the next regular session in 2023.  Until then we will be working on the legislative agenda and keeping you informed through our website, emails, and district leadership.
