The Texas SHL promotes good government for all Texans by directly involving senior citizens in the legislative process. TSHL provides a nonpartisan forum for discussion and debate of senior issues, advocacy training and an avenue through which older citizens may serve as a resource to both public and private sectors.
TSHL goals center around senior welfare and range from motivation and education to provision of an open discussion forum for seniors. The objective is to realize passage of TSHL priorities in the Texas Legislature.
This is the 16th year the SHL has met in Texas.
