The Texas Tribune is pleased to present a series of events focusing on the issues at play in the run-up to the 85th Legislature, and what they mean for the state’s largest and fastest growing cities and surrounding communities.
This conversation, the final event in the series, will focus on public education, immigration, health care, spending & taxes, and other consequential matters with state Sens. Donna Campbell and Carlos Uresti. Tribune CEO Evan Smith will moderate.
