Members of the Texas House of Representatives and Senate will return to Austin to convene the 87th Legislative Session. This Associated Press file photo shows the Texas Capitol.

The Texas 87th Legislature will convene at noon today, and there are six state representatives and state senators who are filing bills that could affect you if they become laws. 

Most have already filed bills once the pre-file period began Nov. 9. Legislators have a March 12 deadline before they cannot file any more bills this session.
