Following each legislative session in Texas, organizations, state agencies, and other entities publish "wrap-ups" summarizing new laws and key legislative developments on various issues such as education, the environment and criminal justice. Wrap-ups can range from a simple list of bills to a detailed report that includes background information and expert analyses. 
 
Below is a short selection of legislative wrap-ups for the 2011 Legislative Session. More are available, and some are still being written. To find one on a topic that interests you, check the websites of state or national organizations that focus on the issue, or of state agencies, or visit  the library and search the Current Articles database.
