About this title


Visit for a discounted copy. This is the second edition of the Texas Legislative Law Handbook. Along with all of the precedent from the 85th Session, this book has two new chapters. The Legislative Process chapter describes all of the most important rules in both the House and the Senate. The Campaign & Ethics chapter, contributed by Andrew Cates, explains the laws that apply to candidates, lobbyists, and PACs. The chapters from the first book are still around and were updated with new content. The Legislative Drafting chapter will provide you with all of the tools necessary to draft bills, amendments, and resolutions. This edition also has a new section on drafting in a special session. The Points of Order chapter will help you master the most commonly used rules and constitutional provisions. It also includes descriptions of every successful point of since 2011. See the bill-scrubbing checklist if you need to kill a bill immediately. The new edition also has all the precedent from the 85th, as well as a rule-referencing list so that you can easily find the applicable defect when a member cites a rule from the microphone. The Statutory Interpretation chapter has hundreds of cases from Texas courts that explain how to resolve ambiguities in law. This edition includes a section on Stare Decisis, as well as all of the precedent that has come down since the last edition. The Executive and Agency Action discusses veto authority and other powers of the Governor. Then, it dives into agency authority, including the most recent precedent on anticompetitive rules. For the new edition, I've added a number of sections that describe the contested case process in detail. There is also a new section on agencies lobbying the legislature. The appendix of the book has a drafting checklist, a bill-scrubbing checklist, a rule referencing list, and the vote requirements of each chamber.
