The Texas Silver Haired Legislature (TSHL) was created by the 69th Texas Legislature upon adoption of Senate Concurrent Resolution (SCR) 37, April 3, 1985. Their mission is “to promote good government for all Texans by directly involving Senior citizens in the legislative process. TSHL provides a nonpartisan forum for discussion and debate of Senior issues, advocacy training, and an avenue through which older citizens may serve as a resource to both public and private sectors.”
