Event Details

The Texas Tribune is pleased to present, in partnership with Houston First, a conversation series on the major policy debates of the 84th Legislature — and what they mean for the state’s largest city and surrounding communities. Join us in person or on our livestream for the second installment of this series: a review of the just-finished legislative session with state Sen. Brandon Creighton, R-Conroe, and state Rep. Sylvester Turner, D-Houston. Tribune CEO and Editor-in-Chief Evan Smith will moderate.

Creighton has represented Senate District 4 since 2014. He is the vice chairman of the Business and Commerce Committee and sits on the Agriculture, Water and Rural Affairs; Criminal Justice; and State Affairs committees. He previously served four terms in the Texas House, representing District 16.

Turner has represented House District 139 since 1989. He is the vice chairman of the Appropriations Committee and the chairman of the Subcommittee on Articles I, IV and V. He also sits on the State Affairs Committee and was a budget conferee in the 84th session. He is running for mayor of Houston.

This event will be held in Grand Ballroom A of the George R. Brown Convention Center in Houston. Paid parking will be available in a number of nearby lots and garages. The event is free and open to the public and includes a complimentary lunch.

The conversation will also be livestreamed at (starting at noon), and the video will be accessible for viewing afterward. 

Texas Tribune events feature in-depth discussions with prominent elected officials and newsmakers moderated by Evan Smith, CEO and editor-in-chief, and other expert journalists from the Tribune. Each free event features refreshments, networking and audience question-and-answer time.

The "Houston & the Legislature" series of conversations is generously sponsored by Houston First, and this event is supported by CenterPoint Energy. Tribune events are also supported through contributions from our founding investors and members.
