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 2016, 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

Sylvester Turner, born on September 27, 1954, grew up in the Acres Homes community within northwest Houston. He began his political career as student body president at Klein High School. While working on his bachelor of arts in political science at the University of Houston, Turner served as the speaker of the student senate. After earning his bachelor's degree, Turner obtained his jurisprudence degree from Harvard University. After graduation, he joined the law firm of Fulbright and Jaworski. In 1983, Turner founded his own law firm of Barnes and Turner. In 1984, Turner unsuccessfully ran for the position of Harris County Commissioner, Precinct 1.

In 1988, Turner was elected to the Texas House of Representatives for District 139 (encompassing parts of Harris County). Turner's notable committee service includes the House State Affairs Committee (1993-2002 and 2009-2015 as a member, 1995-2002 as vice chair); Appropriations Committee (1995-2008 and 2011-2015 as a member, 2011-2015 as vice chair); Appropriations Subcommittee on Criminal Justice (2003-2007 as a member and chair); Appropriations Subcommittee on General Government, the Judiciary, and Criminal Justice and Public Safety (2013-2015 as a member and chair); House Select Committee on Hurricane Ike Storm Devastation to the Texas Gulf Coast (2007 as a member and chair); House Regulated Industries Committee (2003-2007 as a member); Budget and Oversight Subcommittee of the House Regulated Industries Committee (2003-2007 as a member and chair); House Select Committee on Electric Generation Capacity and Environmental Effects (2007 as a member); House Select Committee on the Operation and Management of the Texas Youth Commission (2007 as a member); and as House Speaker Pro Tem (2003-2009). As a member of the Appropriations Committee, Turner pushed for the creation of the Texas Digital Archive, a program of the Texas State Library and Archives Commission that facilitates access to the electronic records, funded through House Bill 1 (84th Texas Legislature, Regular Session). This appropriations bill also funded three positions devoted to the project and dedicated monies for electronic records storage costs. From 2006 to 2015, Turner was a member of the Legislative Budget Board. Additionally, he served as chair of the Texas Legislative Black Caucus.

As a representative, Turner took an interest in the criminal justice system (both juvenile and adult justice), children's health, utility affordability, access to health care, consumer rights, housing options and barriers, education funding and reform, government appropriations, issues affecting the African-American community, and neighborhood issues (including development, crime, events, and disaster recovery). Turner has served as an adjunct professor at the Thurgood Marshall School of Law in Houston as well as a lecturer at the South Texas College of Law and University of Houston Law School.

Turner unsuccessfully ran for mayor of Houston in 1991 and 2003. In late 2015, Turner was elected mayor of Houston. Turner subsequently resigned as a state representative, effective January 1, 2016.

Scope and Contents of the Records

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 I) vests with all legislative power of the state. Representative Sylvester Turner's records document his representation of House District 139 (1989-2015), which encompasses part of the city of Houston, through his legislative activities, constituent casework, and general office operations. Records include correspondence, bill analyses, bill files and amendments, witness and contact lists, presentations, reports, transcripts, talking points, speeches, meeting minutes and agenda, memorandums, digital images, charts and spreadsheets, labels, news clippings, press releases, and other background materials. Records date from 1974, 1981-2015, undated, bulk 2005-2015. Subjects include utilities affordability and accessibility, especially in regard to electricity and water; the criminal justice system particularly the operation of private and government justice centers, conditions for offenders and officers, legal rights of offenders, and oversight of the state's justice agencies (including the Texas Department of Criminal Justice and the Texas Juvenile Justice Department and its predecessor the Texas Youth Commission); confidentiality of juvenile offender records; programs aimed at providing emotional and financial support for crime victims; the state's judiciary process; programs for low-income persons; funding and administration of government agencies and programs; education funding and structure; tax issues, notably relief or property value assessment; consumer protection, especially in regards to financial issues; healthcare for children and senior citizens; mental health programs both in medical facilities and in the community; abortion; human trafficking; natural disaster recovery; transportation needs and projects; factors specifically affecting the African-American community; barriers for persons with disabilities; workforce issues; elections as it relates to voter identification laws and polling place accessibility; and issues affecting northwest Houston neighborhoods, especially regarding crime, recreation and infrastructural development, and community events. Records are electronic as well as paper.

Committee and council membership reflected in the records include the House State Affairs Committee; House Appropriations Committee; House Appropriations Subcommittee on Criminal Justice; House Appropriations Subcommittee on General Government, the Judiciary, and Criminal Justice and Public Safety; House Select Committee on Hurricane Ike Storm Devastation to the Texas Gulf Coast; House Regulated Industries Committee; House Select Committee on Electric Generation Capacity and Environmental Effects; House Select Committee on the Operation and Management of the Texas Youth Commission; Texas Legislative Black Caucus; and Texas Legislative Budget Board. The Texas Criminal Justice Coalition is heavily reflected in the records with policy position papers, reports, and correspondence. The work of Turner's staff members and interns are represented in the records. These persons include Alison Brock (first as a legislative aide in 2005 and then as chief of staff afterward), Will Seilheimer (a legislative aide from 2005-2007), Matthew Cherry (an intern in 2013), Dominique Calhoun (a legal intern in 2015), and Emma Oliver (an intern in 2015).

A number of the records did not have folder titles (if foldered at all). These are identified as uncategorized with the exception of a handful of paper correspondence regarding offenders in state custody. The latter are listed as offender issues. Some folder titles for electronic records are condensed. Duplicate files may exist.

Representative Turner's Bill files, 2005-2015, highlight legislation Turner authored, sponsored, or was interested in from the 79th (2005) to 84th (2015) legislative sessions. Subject files series, 1991-2015, undated, bulk 2007-2015, document topics of interest to Turner or his staff. This background information may have been used for future legislation, as research for work on committees or councils, or for constituent casework. Turner's Committee and council membership records, 2005-2015, reflect his work on House committee and legislative councils. Correspondence and constituent casework, 1974, 1981-2015, undated, illustrates communications between the legislator and his constituents as well as with other state officials. The General office files series, 1989-2015, bulk 2005-2015, relate to the general operation of his legislative office and reflect the representative's achievements during specific legislative sessions, his public relations strategy, and the internship selection process.

Committee and council membership records, 2005-2015,
2.4 cubic ft. and 912 MB (740 files)

Texas Representative Sylvester Turner's committee and council membership records reflect his work on House committee and legislative councils. Records include bill files, bill analyses, meeting briefing notes and background materials, riders, correspondence, reports, background information, presentations, and testimony, dating 2005-2015. Subjects include conducting budget oversight, funding of state government programs and salaries, assessing the administration of state government, evaluating of the duties and conduct of state officials and employees, partnering with other Democratic legislators, workings of the Texas Legislative Black Caucus, addressing utility affordability and access issues, and responding to natural disasters on the Gulf Coast. The bulk of the records concern Turner's service on the House Appropriations Committee; House Appropriations Subcommittee on Criminal Justice; and House Appropriations Subcommittee on General Government, the Judiciary, and Criminal Justice and Public Safety. Other committees and councils represented are the House State Affairs Committee, House Select Committee on Hurricane Ike Storm Devastation to the Texas Gulf Coast; House Regulated Industries Committee; Democrats for Reform; House Select Committee on Electric Generation Capacity and Environmental Effects; House Select Committee on the Operation and Management of the Texas Youth Commission; and Texas Legislative Black Caucus.
Researchers should note that bill files related to funding or operation of state government can also be found in the Bill files series. The Subject files series includes background information compiled by Turner's office, especially in regard to criminal justice, government funding, utility affordability, disaster recovery, and operation of state government. Due to Turner's role as a committee or council member, constituents and public officials may have written to the representative. See the Correspondence and constituent casework series for these communications.

Digital files presented for public use will generally be PDF for text documents or spreadsheets, .jpg for photographic or graphic images, and .mp3 for audio files. Files in their original format are available on request; restrictions may apply.
Electronic records described in the finding aid that are part of the Texas Digital Archive are indicated as such in the inventory. Restrictions on access to the content of records are applicable to physical and electronic records.

Correspondence and constituent casework, 1974, 1981-2015, undated,
5.4 cubic ft. and 24.9 MB (192 files)

Texas Representative Sylvester Turner's correspondence illustrates communications between the legislator and his constituents as well as other state officials. Records primarily consist of correspondence but also include attachments containing background materials (such as news clippings, copies of utility and medical bills, medical records, copies of bank statements, photographs, court documents, reports, minutes and agenda, and criminal histories) of relating to the issues discussed, dating 1974, 1981-2015, undated. Subjects include offender issues (such as requests to improve conditions especially in regards to heat and treatment by officers, medical treatment, hardship transfers, and legal rights), utility billing and access issues, programs aimed toward reducing costs for senior citizens, operation of state agencies, public employee retirement funds, requests to intervene in financial hardship situations, race relations, barriers faced by women and minority business owners, workforce issues (e.g. whistle-blower, collection of unemployment benefits, and position reinstatement), neighborhood issues (e.g. crime, natural disasters, recreation and infrastructural development, and events), implementation of state-wide tests, women's reproductive health, electronic device recycling programs, and recognition requests. Support and opposition letters as well as Turner's outgoing correspondence to constituents and state officials are present. Much of the paper correspondence was received in unlabelled folders or grouped together with binder clips.
Alison Brock, a staff member in Turner's office as a legal aid and then as chief of staff from the late 1990s to 2015, appears to have handled much of the follow-up and background research conducted in constituent casework. She also responded on behalf of Turner. Work done by interns Dominique Calhoun and Emma Oliver (both during the 84th Texas Legislature) are also present. Turner's office used the legislature's correspondence management system to track correspondence and casework.
Correspondence may have resulted in proposed legislation. Researchers should check the Bill files series for additional records. Correspondents may have written Turner's office due to his role as a committee or council member. See the Committee and council membership records series for these types of records. The Subject files series includes background information that may have been compiled due to constituent correspondence.
Formats of the original electronic files include word processing or plain text files (.doc, .pdf, .rtf, .wpd), correspondence (.msg), and web pages (.htm). Digital files presented for public use will generally be PDF for text documents. Files in their original format are available on request; restrictions may apply.
