Texas lawmakers file second highest number of bills in state legislative history
Michael Schneider, TAB Vice President, Legislative & Regulatory Affairs
The March 13 regular bill filing deadline passed with Texas lawmakers filing more than 6,100 bills, the second highest total on record. The final two days of regular filing alone saw more than 1,600 bills put into the legislative hopper for consideration. This session's bill filing juggernaut surpassed the 2013 Legislature but fell short of the all-time high of 7,400 bills filed by Texas lawmakers in 2009. All of TAB's legislative priority bills outlined at the TAB Legislative Day conference have been filed. Several other measures affecting the broadcast industry were filed in the last week.
