2012 Election Update
Newly elected members are gearing up for the both the 113th session of the United States Congress and the 83rd session of the Texas Legislature. The next session of Congress runs from January 3, 2013 to January 3, 2015. The 140-day regular session of the Texas Legislature convenes January 8 and adjourns May 27, 2013.
There will be many new faces trying to find solutions at both the federal and state level, and CNAP members should make an effort to become acquainted with the new members and their staffs to educate them on CNAP’s legislative priorities. To ensure that you know who represents you in the 83rd Texas Legislature, refer to http://www.fyi.legis.state.tx.us/. On the CNAP website (www.cnaptexas.org) there is a summary of the new members elected to the U.S. Congress, the Texas Senate and the Texas House of Representatives.
