1.0 hour of CLE credit has been approved for this event. Lunch provided.

Article I, Sec. 1 of the Texas Constitution declares the importance of “preserv[ing] the right of local self-government.” While this provision ostensibly refers to local self-government in the state vs. federal context, can Texas cities invoke this and other legal principles to defend local ordinances from superseding acts by the Texas legislature?

Join the ACS Austin Lawyer Chapter and the ACS University of Texas School of Law Student Chapter for a discussion with the Hon. Gina Hinojosa on wins and losses in recent local control battles in cities across Texas.


Hon. Gina Hinojosa, Representative for House District 49, Texas State House of Representatives
