TRA News Now - School Start Date

TRA is working with the A+ Texas coalition to support legislation to establish a uniform school year that begins after Labor Day and ends before Memorial Day.
This will restore a full summer for Texas families and enable Texas businesses to grow while generating more tax revenues and creating more jobs. Find out more by watching our latest two-minute TRA News Now.
 

TRA News Now - TRAction Fund

Most everyone has heard of TRA’s Political Action Committee which combines member contributions to help impact various elections, supporting candidates who merit the support of our industry.

 

But did you know that TRA also has a ‘war chest’ called the TRAction Fund? This special fund supports legal, lobbying and media firepower needed to support pro-business endeavors and fight anti-business initiatives at the local, state and national levels.
