In March and April, your association adapted the in-person REALTOR® Day at the Texas Capitol to a virtual environment. Texas REALTORS® worked with the offices of all 181 Texas senators and representatives to schedule virtual meetings with their REALTOR® constituents.
These meetings were important opportunities for REALTORS® to discuss several of the association’s legislative priorities for the 87th Texas Legislature:
- Increasing broadband access
- Reforming civil liability
- Removing discriminatory covenants in real estate deeds
- Bringing balance to homeowners associations
- Keeping real estate moving as an economic driver.
REALTORS® also commended legislators for working to ensure Texans have reliable and affordable utility services.
REALTOR® Day at the Texas Capitol is a grassroots event organized every legislative session—it’s the cornerstone of Texas REALTORS® advocacy. Member participation ensures your profession is protected.
Ready to serve?
Each state senator and state representative has a designated REALTOR® Legislative Contact Team composed of REALTORS® from the legislator’s home district who are constituents just like you. In fact, many were appointed to these positions because they have a relationship with their designated legislator. If you’re interested in serving on a Legislative Contact Team, contact Political Affairs Specialist Joanna Ramirez at email@example.com.
