Our members are kept abreast of property owner issues and concerns through events and frequent news updates through electronic and printed media.



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.


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

The city of Roma’s assistant city manager, Freddy Guerra, explains the number of crimes in the city has not increased, but the number of asylum seekers being apprehended in the city has.

Based on latest apprehension release from Border Patrol Guerra stated "It was concerning, some of the questions we have are whether those criminals crossing over are intermingled with the large family units we've been seeing recently here in the city or are these criminals being apprehended in different areas of our community,” says Guerra.

The criminals were wanted all across the state of Texas and the state of Virginia.

"Whether we need a wall or not, I don't know, but we need a border," said STPRA Director, Whit Jones. "And we need a way to let people in so that Americans can utilize the workforce - ranchers, farmers, agriculture... I'm sure there's thousands of other businesses that would benefit from it."
