About the Council

The Texas Legislative Council was established by legislative act in 1949 and was activated in 1950. The mission of the council is to provide professional, nonpartisan service and support to the Texas Legislature and the legislative agencies. In every area of responsibility, council staff strive for quality and efficiency.

The council serves as a source of impartial research and information. It employs professional, administrative, and technical staff to assist legislators in drafting and analyzing proposed legislation and in obtaining information on specific legislative problems and on matters affecting the general welfare of the state. Council staff also handle the printing, processing, and distribution of legislative documents and provide computer support to the legislature and all of the other legislative agencies.
