We will have a Legislative Update
to our members tomorrow, March 9th, with information on our four top priorities: full funding for state tourism promotion; funding for other state agencies' tourism activities including THC, TCA, TPWD & TxDOT; school start date; and no new fees or taxes directed specifically at the travel and tourism industry.
If you do not currently receive our Legislative Updates
, please let us know so we can ensure that you are added to that distribution list. You can send your contact information to Janice Langlinais
