AUSTIN, TX — Young Conservatives of Texas (YCT), an independent, non-partisan, conservative grassroots organization, today announced its 83rd Session Legislative Priorities.
“We are extremely excited to share with new and returning legislators our organization’s new priorities for the 83rd session,” said YCT State Chairman Jeff Morris. “We have made considerable changes and revisions to this year’s priorities and we believe they provide for a consistently liberty-minded and fiscally-conservative pathway for state government.”
YCT plans to incorporate more of the legislative priorities in their post-session ratings than ever before, as well as rework future endorsement questionnaires to model these declared positions.
“YCT is looking to bring its legislative priorities into every facet of the organization’s legislative affairs process,” said Jeramy Kitchen, Senior Vice Chairman. “By establishing a clear set of expectations and priorities, we are better informing current legislators and future challengers who may seek our endorsement and support as to what we want to see done in Texas.”
Young Conservatives of Texas is a non-partisan organization that has promoted conservatism at universities across the Lone Star State for over three decades. The State’s most active political youth organization, YCT is composed of hundreds of members and alumni who participate in the full spectrum of politics. YCT issues the most respected ratings of the Texas legislature and is the only conservative group to have done so without interruption over the past 19 legislative sessions.
