Breakfast has always been the most important meal of the day, but once the legislative session starts, one breakfast will stand out each week as the most important.
For more than 20 years, TAC has hosted its signature Tuesday morning breakfasts each week during the legislative sessions. These working breakfast meetings provide county officials the information and motivation they need to tackle another week at the Capitol and stay abreast of the fast-paced legislative landscape.
“The meetings are truly a working meeting for a county official to attend if they’re in town. We’ll really dig into issues. As the session rolls on and committee hearings pick up, it’ll become more of a grab-n-go format looking at the big issues facing counties that particular week,” TAC Legislative Director Paul Sugg said. “I think they’re an absolutely essential component to our success during this session.”
The breakfasts are held 7:30-8:30 a.m. each Tuesday, Jan. 10 through May 23, 2017 in the TAC Board Room, less than three blocks from the Capitol building. Officials who make the trip to Austin to testify in public hearings or speak with their legislators are encouraged to park their vehicles in the TAC parking garage for the day, treat themselves to a good breakfast and hear about county-related issues and the progress of the session directly from TAC’s staff of legislative liaisons and invited guests.
The TAC building is located at 1210 San Antonio Street. Free parking is available for your convenience in TAC’s parking garage. The entrance is on 13th St., between San Antonio and Nueces. Please contact Amy Ruedas at (800) 456-5974 with any questions about the breakfasts.
