South Texans' Property Rights Association

Making a difference for a better South Texas


Our members are kept abreast of property owner issues and concerns through events and frequent news updates through electronic and printed media. Click below to learn about the 2017 85th legislative session bills of concern.


The STPRA board of directors has currently identified 10 areas of concern. We provide information and education about these issues and in some cases may take positions and work actively toward their resolution.
