Texas Silver-Haired Legislature Town Hall Meeting

TOWN-HALL MEETING – Thursday November 14, 2019

9:00am to 11:30am

Every two years, the Texas Legislature convenes to conduct State business.  Many legislative issues involve the senior citizens of Texas.  In 1985, the Texas Legislature authorized the establishment of the Texas Silver-Haired Legislature (TSHL) to advocate for seniors 60 and over. The TSHL is made up of nonpartisan representatives from every House Electoral District.  The purpose of the TSHL is to provide an avenue through which older citizens may serve as a resource to elected officials, as well as public and private organizations and agencies that work with senior citizens.

 In preparation for the 2021 Texas Legislative Session, TSHL is conducting town hall meetings in an effort to

Identify issues that should be considered by the Texas State Legislature during their upcoming legislative session.

 

The Town-Hall Meeting will include discussion regarding legislative issues that TSHL may need to consider as we draft resolutions for presentation to the 2021 Texas Legislature.

 

 Come with your suggestions, and prepared to participate in the discussion! .

 

The Town-Hall meeting will be held at:

North Richland Hills Public Library

9015 Grand Ave.

North Richland Hills, TX 76180
