TTIA's Advocacy Agenda
Advocacy Priorities for the Texas Travel Industry
Life's Better in a State of Travel
Texas Elections: Candidate and Voter Information for 2018 Elections


The Texas Travel Industry Association (TTIA) and our members support non-partisan issues that generate revenue, protect and grow the business of travel and tourism in Texas, supports more than 1 Million Texas jobs, and improve the quality of life for all Texans.

TTIA monitors legislative activities and informs the membership and the ACT Now! Coalition when action is required.  Join the coalition today!

Additionally, TTIA works in cooperation with local communities and other travel industry entities in the state to develop awareness of the benefits of travel and to keep the industry healthy.
TTIA's Advocacy Priorities are to:
  • Preserve funding for state tourism promotion (Office of the Governor, Economic Development & Tourism)
  • Maintain school start date law (4th Monday in August)
  • Preserve the event trust fund programs
  • Prevent unfair taxes, redirection of dedicated funds, unreasonable regulations and disruptive policies on the Texas travel industry 
  • Support reasonable transportation infrastructure policies that impact the Texas travel industry
  • Support reasonable public policies for water and drought issues impacting the Texas travel industry
  • Preserve state funding for programs that benefit travel and tourism at The Texas Parks & Wildlife Department (TP&WD), Texas Historical Commission (THC), Texas Department of Transportation (TXDOT), And Texas Commission On The Arts (TCA)
  • Support policies that enhance workforce development
