People often know more about federal government than state government.  Ironically, it is our state government that more directly impacts our daily lives.

Texas Political Science was established with the goal of promoting civic efficacy and engagement in the lone star state by providing accurate, centralized, easily accessible information related to Texas government and politics.  At Texas Political Science, it is our hope that increased knowledge of the structure and functions of state government will translate into increased understanding of the importance of – and likelihood of engaging in – direct interaction with state government.
