Capitol Inside, nationally recognized for its political reporting, publishes the Texas Lobby Power Rankings at the beginning of each session. Publisher Mike Hailey has once again named TCTA as the top teacher lobby group in the state.

TCTA has achieved this honor for the last several sessions, reflecting the hard work of our legislative staff, leaders and membership. Hailey talks to legislators, legislative staffers and other lobbyists to arrive at the rankings.
