Event description

Description

The Texas Tribune is pleased to present a series of events focusing on the major policy debates of the 85th Texas Legislature and ahead of the 86th legislative session — and what they mean for one of the state’s largest cities and its surrounding communities.


Join us in person or on our livestream for the second installment of this series: a conversation about public education, immigration, health care, spending, taxes and other consequential matters with Austin-area state Reps. Celia Israel and Paul Workman. Tribune co-founder and CEO Evan Smith will moderate.

Israel, D-Austin, has represented House District 50 since 2014. She serves as vice chairwoman of the House Elections Committee and sits on the Transportation Committee. Previously, she served on the boards of the Greater Austin Hispanic Chamber of Commerce and the Alliance for Public Transportation. Israel is also a real estate agent with Home and Hearth Realty.

Workman, R-Austin, has represented House District 47 since 2011. He sits on the House Business & Industry and Natural Resources committees and the Subcommittee on Special Water Districts. Previously, he served 10 years in the U.S. Army Reserves. Workman is also the founder of Austin-based Workman Commercial Construction Services, Ltd.

This event will be held in Room 8500 on the Austin Community College Eastview campus (campus map). Complimentary visitor parking is available in Lot D, and visitor handicap parking is available in Lot G. The event is free, open to the public and includes a light lunch.



The "Austin & the Legislature" series is sponsored by Blue Cross and Blue Shield of Texas and Southwest Airlines, the official airline of Texas Tribune Events. This event is hosted by Austin Community College. Foundation support is provided by the Hatton W. Sumners Foundation. Though donors and corporate sponsors underwrite our events, they play no role in determining the content, panelists or line of questioning.
