2/13/2019 Legislative Update:

TCRA Capitol Day was a huge success! Reporters from all across the state embarked upon the Capitol to visit legislators and bring to their attention legislation that had been filed on our behalf that morning.

We are happy to inform you of the filing of the 2019 Court Reporter Reform Legislation, also known as House Bill 1619. Representative Jeff Leach from House District 67, who is chair of the Judiciary & Civil Jurisprudence Committee in the House, is the sponsor. It will also be filed in the Senate very soon. We will keep you updated as the bill goes through committee and the progress that it's making in both chambers.

Please read the full bill here.

Also provided is a section-by-section analysis of the bill written by our lobbyists, Steve and Amy Bresnen. You can read the full analysis here.

This is an exciting time to be a member of TCRA! Thank you for your membership. 

We are working for YOU!
