TSHL Celebrates 30 Years of Advocacy

Created by the Texas Legislature in 1985, the TSHL celebrates 30 years of working in partnership with the Texas Legislature to better the lives of Senior Citizens around the State.
The vision of the Texas Silver-Haired Legislature is that the applied wisdom, energy, and experience of aging will improve the lives of all Texans through education, knowledge, and involvement in legislation and governmental affairs.

There are 4.1 million seniors 60 years and older living in Texas today. These older Texans are our constituents. TSHL identifies the issues and problems of our peers, develops problem-solving solutions and advocates for adoption of these solutions by the Texas Legislature.

Since the creation of TSHL, 687 older Texans have served as members, adopting 789 Resolutions that recommended action by the Texas Legislature to solve problems faced by our peers.
