Policy Agenda

Savings Programs and Post-Secondary Education/College Access: This session we followed five bills that assist families and youth with planning and saving for higher education.  Learn more about important savings bills this legislative session.

Payday, Auto Title, and Consumer Loans Regulations: RAISE Texas monitored the progress of 19 bills this session to regulate consumer loans.  There were also two bills on potential pre-emption including payday and auto title local ordinances.  We were disappointed that no major progress was made to support proper regulations of these devastating loans, but were pleased that no harmful bills passed.

Financial Education, Financial Accounts and Related Services: RAISE Texas and its partners workied with different legislators to support financial education programs, financial accounts and other related services for Texans. Visit our Texas Legislation page to view the list of all of the bills we tracked this session.
