Mission Day in Austin - 83rd Legislative Session
Leaders from the Mission, Texas community have formed a delegation to go to the Texas Capitol to advocate for our community on Tuesday, February 19, 2013. The delegation expects a full day of work this Tuesday.
There will be some ceremonial activities, such as having a Mission Day Proclamation in the Texas House of Representatives, and group photos with key state leaders.
The most important component of Mission Day will consist of visits to more than 50 offices of state representatives to advocate for issues that affect our city and region.
A successful visit will result in the Texas House of Representatives passing legislation that is beneficial to local businesses and government so that we can continue to prosper. Or, alternatively, would help our community avoid legislation that would hurt our community.
The Mission Day in Austin Legislative Outreach Delegation will spend a full day advocating for our community on Tuesday and getting some rest before coming home the next morning.
