Legislative Committee Mission & Duties

There are two key responsibilities of the Legislative Committee: 1) to inform the Executive Director and TASPA members of pending legislative initiatives impacting Texas schools, and 2) to represent the TASPA membership before the legislature by providing written or oral testimony as needed, in concert with the TASPA Executive Director and the Legislative Committee Chair.

In years when the Texas Legislature is not in session, Legislative Committee Members shall work with the Committee Chair to develop a legislative action plan that will allow for the optimum performance of human resource departments in Texas Public Schools, identifying key issues of concern that can be addressed legislatively. The committee shall meet at times as identified by the Executive Director and as may be recommended by the Committee Chair, and with approval for travel expenses by the TASPA President, or they may conduct their committee work on-line insofar as possible.

In years when the Texas Legislature is in session, Legislative Committee Members shall work with the Committee Chair and the Executive Director to ensure timely and prompt feedback is provided to present at testimony hearings of specific bills affecting human resources in public schools. These communications may be conducted on-line or by telephone insofar as possible, although travel to Austin to testify in person on key HR bills can be expected.

The Chair of the Legislative Committee, and ideally all the committee members, need to have strong district support in participating in this committee, as travel requirements to Austin from January to June can be high depending on the level of concern of bills impacting Human resources in Public Schools.

The Committee shall also review and recommend to the Executive Board, prior to its Annual December meeting, any additions, deletions and revisions addressing the committee's stated purpose and operational procedures.
