Texas Legislative History and Related Resources

Before the Texas Legislature Online and the Legislative Reference Library of Texas sites were created, compiling Texas legislative history was more difficult and time-consuming. These two sites not only make legislative history documents available online but contain valuable tutorial and educational materials on the Texas legislative process and links to the Texas Constitution, Statutes and Codes.
