ESDs live and die by the laws passed in Austin, and you can have an impact on laws being considered at next year's legislative session by participating SAFE-D's Biennial Legislative Workshop.
ESD Commissioners from across Texas will develop strategies to improve the way that ESDs deliver their services and protect the lives and properties of Texans.
Help SAFE-D develop legislative approaches on topics like:
- Sales tax protection
- Property tax reliability
