About the Texas AFT Legislative Hotline
The Texas AFT Legislative Hotline is published by e-mail and to this site each business weekday (and some holidays and weekends when important news justifies a post) by the staff at the Texas American Federation of Teachers.
You may sign up for the e-mail list here.
Hotlines from August 20, 2010 to present may be found on the main site through the month links on the right navigation bar, or by using the search field.
Hotlines before that day may be found here.
