Legislators can make a difference for Texas seniors

Posted: Thursday, April 24, 2014 12:00 am

I’ve written of past successes the Silver Haired Legislature’s resolutions have had with the State Legislature in helping create worthwhile senior legislation. We do make a difference because we listen to you, our peers, and the State Legislature takes the issues seriously when we ask for their support. They know we do not approach them unprepared. All of this is a united effort and one to which we have dedicated our time, experience and energy. Be warned, big budget items are almost sure to fail.

In two weeks, TSHL will be meeting in the House Chambers of the Capitol. We will be debating the value of more than 100 resolutions written by our peers. We have been gathering the proof of these needs for almost two years at town meetings, political rallies, church presentations and seminars at various colleges and senior centers.
