Austin, TX – Since the 83rd Texas Legislative Session ended, the Texas State Alliance of YMCAs did not waste any time to prepare for the upcoming 84th Session. Since last summer, we continued to strengthen our relationships with state elected officials and their staff. During our meetings with legislators and their staff, we discussed our goal to make Texas the healthiest state in the United States as well as how the Ys are serving constituents from their district through various events and programs.

The 84th Texas Legislative Session begins on January 13, 2015 and the Texas State Alliance of YMCAs will continue to build positive relationships with state legislators and advocate for a healthier Texas.
