EFF-Austin's Plans for the Next Session of the Texas Legislature

Join the EFF-Austin team as we present our legislative agenda for the 86(R) session, including what our strategy is, what our current areas of interest are, the materials we will be sharing with the legislators, and how you can get involved.

Alex Shahrestani is the current EFF-Austin Vice President, and is leading the legislative efforts for this coming session. He’s an attorney with a passion for technology and the law, with a background in computer science. This is his second legislative session in Texas, with experience both on behalf of EFF-Austin and in the office of a legislator.

He will be joined by UT Law’s Legislative Lawyering Clinic students who have been assigned to assist EFF-Austin in its policy goals for the coming session.
