TAADAS 2018 Legislative Session Recap

Background: The 110th General Assembly completed its business on April 25th, 2018 and adjourned sine die, that is without a day to return.  The 111th General Assembly will convene on Tuesday, January 8, 2019 in an organizational session, which will include the election and appointment of new legislative leadership and the appointment of new committee membership. 

Upcoming Elections: In the next election cycle, there will be three open senate seats with no incumbent and 23 open house seats with no incumbent seeking reelection.  Those 23 seats include the ones presently held by Speaker Beth Harwell, Deputy Speaker Steve McDaniel, Finance Committee Chair Charles Sargent, and Democratic Leader Craig Fitzhugh. These departures, along with a new governor in 2019, will create significant changes in the state's leadership.
