Lawmaking in Texas Is Pretty Complicated. What Do You Want to Know About It?

We want to make the workings of the Texas Capitol a little clearer.

The 2017 Texas Legislative session is underway. State legislators meet every other year for 140 days in a frenzy of debating (sometimes arguing), deal-making, stand-taking, bill-killing and, occasionally, law-making.

For the past few weeks, we've been asking what you want to know about the Legislature: how it works, why it works the way it does and what you want lawmakers to do.

It's part of a project we started last year called Texas Decides. Leading up to the November election, we gathered your questions about voting and politics in Texas – and then put those questions to a vote. You chose the questions we answered (you can check out those stories here).

We've teamed up with public radio stations across Texas – Texas Public Radio in San Antonio, Houston Public Media, KERA in Dallas and Marfa Public Radio – to collect and answer your questions about the Texas Legislature over the next few months.

So what do you want to know? Ask your question below and it might be the next one we answer for Texas Decides!
