Silver Haired Legislature
BVAAA supports the Texas Silver-Haired Legislature (TSHL) election. The elected delegates are a non-partisan, representative body of citizens 60+ years of age, elected by their peers. There are a total of 114 Texas Silver-Haired representatives from the 28 areas across the state. The Texas Silver-Haired Legislature was created through the authority of Senate Concurrent Resolution 37(S.C.R.37) adopted by the 69th Texas Legislature in April 1985. The TSHL convenes in Austin to consider and vote on proposed legislation that concerns the needs of older Texans. The objective of the TSHL is to serve the needs of both present and future older Texans.
