86th Legislative Session

Bolstering a thriving business environment that fosters economic development is critical to making Houston greater. In order to advance the Houston region, the Greater Houston Partnership works to pursue policies that create a business environment attractive to leading global companies and skilled talent. 

In the 2019 State Legislative Session, the Partnership focused on two executive priorities: school finance reform and flood resilience. The Legislature passed and Governor Abbott signed legislation into law to invest significant state resources in these priorities as well as other issues important to the business community and the Houston region.

The Partnership's Priorities for the 86th Legislative Session

  • The Partnership is actively working with legislators concerning interim studies that will further the work of the 86th Legislative Session and align the region for success during the 2021 session.
