State Rep. Terry Wilson briefs locals on Legislature

State Rep. Terry Wilson (R-Granite Shoals) recently met with local constituents Craig Magerkurth, Wade Whiteside, Frank Reilly, Brandon Ross and Mike Hall over coffee to provide an update on the 85th Texas Legislature. Wilson took office on Jan. 10 and represents District 20, covering Burnet, Milam, and part of Williamson counties. Rep. Wilson discussed his staff hires for his capitol and district offices, noting that he has brought on two seasoned legislative staffers, Jeff Frazier, his chief of staff, and Michele Samuelson, his district director. Wilson also explained the constitutional and Texas House Rules that govern the movement of legislation, adding that because of those rules, the House sees very little floor action in the first 60 days of the session. He has been spending his time learning procedures, studying issues and legislation, and meeting with constituents. Wilson makes a point to be accessible and to try to personally meet with every person from his district who wants to meet with him. The regular session of the legislature will adjourn on May 29.
