Additional Information

The Texas Legislature is required by the state Constitution to convene for a 140-day session in January of each odd-number year.  Lawmakers considered thousands of bills and amendments, many of which affect the appraisal industry.  From litigation protection to eminent domain procedures, appraisers must always keep a watchful eye on the Legislature.  But like in so many other parts of our lives, COVID has had a profound effect on the legislative process as well, creating uncertainty and complexity for lawmakers trying to do the people‚Äôs business.  Here is a look ahead at the key appraisal industry issues under consideration by the Legislature, as well as an overview of the intersection between policy, politics and pandemics.


Approved for two hours of Appraisal Institute credit
ACE credit is pending.
