Any 4-H member, regardless of age or planning on attending Texas 4-H Congress, must submit a legislative bill for consideration. Participation in the bill writing exercise allows 4-H members the opportunity to become engaged in the legislative process and the 4-H citizenship project. 4-H members attending Texas 4-H Congress will be required to submit at least one bill (this includes Texas 4-H Council, Tech Team, etc) prior to their registration to the event being accepted.
Committees are a bit different this year and will include an Agriculture and Livestock focused committee. The committee structure for Texas 4-H Congress 2020 follows.
- Agriculture and Livestock (AGL)
- Education (EDU)
- Energy and Environment (EEV)
- Government, Finance, & Appropriations (GFA)
- Homeland Security and Public Safety (HPS)
- Judiciary and Juvenile Justice (JJJ)
- Public Health & Welfare (PHW)
