The 84th Regular Session of the 2015 Texas Legislature officially wrapped up on June 1st. During its 140 day term, the Legislature considered 6,276 House and Senate bills with a 21% bill passage rate. The Texas Hotel & Lodging Association reviews every filed bill for impact on the lodging industry. When a bill negatively affects our industry, THLA opposes or seeks amendments to the bill. At the same time, THLA actively works to pass bills that ensure the economic vitality of the lodging industry.
As a member of the Tyler Lodging Association, each lodging property in Tyler is automatically a member of the THLA because of an agreement between the TLA and the City of Tyler to pay all property's membership dues to the THLA.
