Coinciding with the start of the 86th Texas Legislative Session, Baytown council is considering a resolution about legislative priorities concerning the city. 

“There are bullet points about what concerns us, and what we are hoping for from the Legislature, but it boils down to local control,” said City Manager Rick Davis. “The bottom line is Austin doesn’t like telling them Washington telling them what to do and our citizens expect when they elect local government leaders that they will be allowed to lead and make decisions with their citizens for Baytown. Being governed by a city many hours away is not ideal.”
