Texas Wesleyan students attend 2019 Hatton W. Sumners Student Policy Seminar
The Hatton W. Sumners Student Policy Seminar, organized in partnership with The Texas Tribune, was held in Austin, Texas, from March 29 to 31, 2019. The seminar provided students with the opportunity to explore the inner workings of the Texas legislative process. The weekend included thoughtful conversations with two of the most powerful elected officials of the last decade- former Speaker of the Texas House Joe Straus and current Texas Land Commissioner George P. Bush.
Various panel discussions included experts who traced how an idea becomes a bill, a bill becomes a law and how a law becomes practice. The weekend also included tours of both the Governor's Mansion and the Texas State Capitol.
