At the Center for Public Policy Priorities, we believe in a Texas that offers everyone the chance to compete and succeed in life. Legislative advocacy is one important way we use data and analysis to enable Texans of all backgrounds to reach their full potential.
Our bold, research-driven 2017 legislative priorities dare Texas leaders to make Texas the best state for hard-working people and their families. We envision a Texas where everyone is healthy, well-educated, and financially secure. We want the best Texas – a proud state that sets the bar nationally by expanding opportunity for all.
With one of every 11 U.S. kids living in Texas, the well-being of our children will determine not only the future of Texas, but the future of the country. Our child well-being work brings awareness to problems children face and highlights the policy solutions that make children's lives better and Texas stronger. Because Texas kids count.
