What your membership helps us accomplish

Just a few examples of our recent accomplishments include new legislation that protects royalty owners from unfair property taxation and provides new funding to compensate landowners for damages from bailouts. We also filed a legal brief that supported a Supreme Court decision protecting landowners in disputes with oil companies and we expanded Border Patrol cooperation with landowners and local law enforcement. In the coming months, we hope to accomplish even more. However, we couldn’t do it without the generous contributions of members just like you!

In a lot of complex governmental rules that affect our everyday lives here in South Texas, STPRA is our only neutralizer and arbitrator of these rules, laws and proposed legislature that affect us. - John Prukop

"Consequently, landowners have little incentive to help reduce threats to an endangered species. Even if the species were to be down-listed to “threatened” status, the landowner would experience no easing of regulatory restrictions. Rewarding landowners for their efforts would be far more constructive."

Below is a "bill track" report that includes bills that are of significance to STPRA. There has been an effort to carefully target the most important and viable bills to avoid creating an unworkable list, but the list will undoubtedly grow as the bill filing deadline approaches. Please note the "Position" column to see where STPRA stands and a particular bill. Those positions may change as bills are altered or researched further throughout the session.

Yesterday evening STPRA held its first Austin-South Texas Connection gathering hosted by STPRA member, Sergio Rodriguez. The purpose of the event was to recognize the importance of the landowner/legislator connection...visiting and hosting legislators to educate them about our issues and concerns. Gathered at the host's amazing one-of-a-kind office were STPRA members, friends, legislative staff and @J.m. Lozano, whose district encompasses an important part of STPRA’s geographical area.

The event was marked a great success!
