The arrival of the new year brought with it 26 new laws in Texas. The 85th Texas Legislative session began on Jan. 10 and ended on May 29, and lawmakers gathered for a special session from July 18 to Aug. 15 to finish passing new Texas laws. 

The next legislative session will take place on Jan. 8, 2019, and is set to last for 140 days, until May 27, 2019.
