TSEU’s Texas COPE Tour is a series of events designed to build on our political influence coming out of the 84th Texas Legislature. Having faced one of our most difficult legislative sessions, it is critical that we elect more pro-state employee / pro-state services lawmakers. At tour stops, TSEU Legislative Director Harrison Hiner will give a review of the last legislative session and will discuss plans to strengthen our political muscle for the upcoming 2016 elections and onto the 85th Texas Legislature in 2017.

We will make formal announcements and broadcasts as more specific information is planned.  For now, the tentative COPE tour schedule is as follows:
