The Public Policy Oversight Committee (PPOC) identifies, researches and monitors issues to determine the impact those issues and potential law and regulatory changes may have on the real estate market and profession. PPOC develops the association’s legislative priorities, based on recommendations from the four public policy committees (Business Issues, Infrastructure, Land Use, and Taxation), with input from the Legislative Management Team and Texas REALTORS® members at large.  

PPOC assigns issues for study to the four policy committees and reviews each committee’s policy recommendations to ensure they are consistent and uphold the Association’s values and strong defense of private property rights, the real estate consumer, the real estate profession, and Texas communities.

With final approval by the Executive Board, PPOC develops the association’s biennial Legislative Priorities, which form the basis for Texas REALTORS®’ advocacy at the State Capitol.

PPOC also hosts forums at the Texas REALTORS® Winter Meeting and Texas REALTORS® Conference to educate REALTORS® on current policy topics of relevance to the real estate industry.

The Public Policy Oversight Committee is composed of twelve members, including a Chair, Vice Chair, Liaison, Immediate Past Chair, plus the Chair and Vice Chair of each of the public policy issues committees.
