Agency History

The Texas House of Representatives is one arm of the Legislature of the State of Texas (the other being the Texas Senate), which the Texas Constitution (Article III, Section 1) vests with all legislative power of the state. The primary legislative power is enacting laws, and the most visible function of the legislature is to make public policy through drafting, considering, and passing bills and resolutions. Biennially, the House of Representatives elects a speaker from its membership to serve as its presiding officer. The House of Representatives consists of 150 representatives elected in even-numbered years for two-year terms. A representative must be at least 21 years old, a qualified voter, and a resident of Texas for at least two years and of the district represented for at least one year immediately preceding election.

In addition to legislative powers, the legislature exercises other types of authority. Constituent powers include the ability to alter the state constitution, and the members' authority to exercise powers of attorney in behalf of their constituents. Directory and supervisory powers allow the legislature to regulate the state's administrative machinery, made up of boards, commissions, and departments that conduct the affairs of state. The legislature establishes and funds these bodies and defines their functions. Executive powers of each house include selection of legislative officers, employees, and chairs and members of committees. Investigative powers are exercised through the formation of standing, special, interim, and joint committees to study an issue. House committees are usually charged with a particular purpose by the speaker, although this may also be accomplished by a resolution adopted by the house. Each legislative house holds judicial powers over its members, including punishing or expelling members for cause.

The legislature meets in regular session on the second Tuesday in January of odd-numbered years and in special sessions when convened by the governor. The length of the regular session is limited to 140 days. Special sessions are limited to 30 days, but the number of special sessions that may be called is not limited. Only legislative matters submitted by the governor may be considered in special session. All legislative sessions, except for the senate's executive session, are open. Neither house may, without the consent of the other, adjourn for more than three days or move to a place other than where the legislature is sitting. Two-thirds of each house constitutes a quorum, the number of members required to conduct business. If a quorum is not present, a smaller number may vote to adjourn and compel absent members to attend. The house is required to keep and publish a journal of its proceedings and to record the vote on any question on which three members who are present demand an actual count of yeas and nays.

The House of Representatives functions through committees set up under its own rules. The house maintains more standing committees than the senate. By custom the speaker appoints standing, special, and conference committees, although the house is free to designate its own method of selection. Under the Legislative Reorganization Act of 1961, the committee system was expanded, and provisions were made whereby standing, special, and general investigating committees created by each body could function whether or not the legislature was in session. As of 2018, the house has 38 standing committees: Agriculture and Livestock; Appropriations; Business and Industry; Calendars; Corrections; County Affairs; Criminal Jurisprudence; Culture, Recreation, and Tourism; Defense and Veterans' Affairs; Economic and Small Business Development; Elections; Energy Resources; Environmental Regulation; General Investigating and Ethics; Government Transparency and Operation; Higher Education; Homeland Security and Public Safety; House Administration; Human Services; Insurance; International Trade and Intergovernmental Affairs; Investments and Financial Services; Judiciary and Civil Jurisprudence; Juvenile Justice and Family Issues; Land and Resource Management; Licensing and Administrative Procedures; Local and Consent Calendars; Natural Resources; Pensions; Public Education; Public Health; Redistricting; Rules and Resolutions; Special Purpose Districts; State Affairs; Transportation; Urban Affairs; and Ways and Means.

Biographical Sketch

Texas Representative Warren Chisum, a Democrat-turned-Republican from Pampa, served twelve terms in the House of Representatives from the 71st (1989) through the 82nd Texas Legislature (2011), representing House District 84 from 1989 to 1993 and House District 88 from 1993 to 2013. District boundaries changed multiple times during Chisum's tenure, as did his party affiliation between the 74th (1995) and 75th (1997) legislative sessions. When Chisum left office, his district was comprised of Armstrong, Bailey, Briscoe, Castro, Childress, Collingsworth, Donley, Gray, Hall, Hansford, Hemphill, Hutchinson, Lamb, Lipscomb, Ochiltree, Parmer, Roberts, Swisher, and Wheeler Counties.

Chisum was born in 1938 near Miami, Texas, and he has lived in Pampa for most of his life. Prior to his service in the House of Representatives, Chisum worked in the oil and gas industry. He took an interest in natural resources and issues affecting the Texas Panhandle. As a member of the Texas Conservative Coalition, he also focused on legislation defining marriage, maintaining family values, and promoting pro-life issues. In 2012, Chisum chose not to seek reelection in the House, and instead unsuccessfully ran for a Texas Railroad Commission seat. He then became a registered lobbyist focusing on oil and gas industry regulation.

Bill files, 1998, 2001-2011, bulk 2009-2011, highlight legislation Chisum authored, sponsored, or was interested in from the 77th (2001) through the 82nd (2011) legislative sessions.

Topics include water resources, the 2006 grass fires in the Texas Panhandle, abortion, childcare, agriculture, religion's role in society, federal-state relations, waste management, and rural health care.

Chisum's Committee and council membership files, 1996-2011, reflect the representative's service on multiple house committees and caucuses. Records include correspondence, speeches, agenda, transcripts, reports, background information, and committee lists. Prominent committees and caucuses include the House Appropriations Committee, House Committee on Environmental Regulation, and rural and Republican caucuses. All files are electronic.

The Correspondence series, 1989-1991, 1993, 2003, 2005, 2007-2012, shows communications between the legislator and his constituents as well as with other state officials. Records primarily consist of correspondence and letters of support, but also include attachments such as resolutions, event invitations, and newsletters. Subjects include environmental regulation, energy, natural resources, religion's role in society, abortion, transportation, government funding and appropriation, public education, health care, and offender issues.

Office files, 1989-1993, 1995, 1997, 1999-2011, and undated relate to the general operation of his legislative office and reflect the representative's achievements during specific legislative sessions and outreach activities.

Detailed Description of the Records

Bill files, 1998, 2001-2011, bulk 2009-2011,
3.25 cubic ft. and 69 MB (1,628 files)

Bill files highlight legislation Texas Representative Warren Chisum authored, sponsored, or was interested in from the 77th (2001) through the 82nd (2011) Legislature. Records include bill drafts and analyses, resolutions, fiscal notes, correspondence, testimonies, news clippings, memorandums, and publications such as newsletters and brochures. Records date 1998, 2001-2011, bulk 2009-2011.

Resolutions honor citizens, towns, and organizations. Bill drafts are also present and may be proposed legislation that was not filed. Each bill draft tends to be labeled with the tracking number given to it by the Texas Legislative Council instead of topic or bill number.
Researchers should check the Subject files series for topical files of interest to Chisum or his staff. Due to Chisum's service on the Appropriations, Environmental Regulation, and Energy committees, bill files related to funding or operation of state government, energy resources, and environmental regulation can also be found in the Committee and council membership files series. A number of Chisum's constituents wrote his office in support of or in opposition to specific bills or types of legislation.
