Legistlative Priorities 87th Texas Legistlature

The Texas Association of African American Chambers of Commerce (TAAACC) is prepared to lend its support to efforts targeting our state’s challenges. The 87th Legislative Session, an online legislative session, convenes to address these challenges on behalf of a dramatically diverse constituency against the backdrop of a fiscal and political climate that makes finding common ground difficult.

It is especially difficult when attempting to shape solutions for communities teetering on the brink of becoming socio-economic wastelands, where economic growth is often nonexistent, and where solutions to public education’s deficiencies, poverty, crime, welfare, discrimination, substance abuse, inadequate housing and high un- and underemployment are irrefutably linked. Effective policies to answer these challenges must be meaningfully balanced and holistic.

TAAACC believes Texas’ future as a national leader in economic vitality and social responsibility is at stake in this 87th Legislature.

We will advance our concerns to our elected representatives as evidence of our commitment to help ensure a productive agenda for Texas.
