The Legislative Committee is appointed by the President of the Sheriffs' Association of Texas and composed of Sheriffs from around the state. They are active participants in the legislative process and insure that all bills introduced which affect the duties, responsibilities, training, court and jail functions of the Sheriffs are given proper consideration.
When a particular bill affects the Sheriffs, they will be notified so they may contact their Senators and Representatives concerning their views.
After the completion of the Legislative Session, the Committee will provide input into the book entitled, Selected New Legislation published by the Sheriffs' Association of Texas and will make said publication available to participants in the Annual Training Conference held in July of the year the legislature meets.
