The 86th Texas Legislative Session is underway in Austin and over the next 140 days many laws and issues will be debated. There are certain to be some fireworks in Austin and if you want to watch lawmakers discuss the issues, you can even if you aren't in Austin. The State of Texas runs two different live streams of the Texas Legislature.
