TTIA's Advocacy Agenda

Advocacy Priorities for the Texas Travel Industry
Life's Better in a State of Travel
Texas Elections: Candidate Information for 2015-2016 Cycle


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)
  • Prevent unfair taxes and unreasonable regulations on the Texas travel industry
  • Ensure dedicated funds are used for their intended purposes
  • Protect the events trust funds
  • 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 comprehensive transportation infrastructure planning (and support Move Texas Forward Coalition)
  • Support reasonable public policies for water/drought issues impacting the Texas travel industry
