Biographical Sketch

During the 75th Legislature he served as the Vice-Chair of State Affairs and on Health and Human Services, Natural Resources Subcommittee on Water, Congressional/Legislative Redistricting, and Nominations Committees. During the 76th Legislature he served on Health Services, Intergovernmental Relations, and State Affairs Subcommittee on Infrastructure.

Senator Nixon chose not to run for reelection during the 2000 election.

Scope and Contents of the Records

Correspondence, bill copies, amendments, fiscal notes, memoranda, bill analyses, printed materials, reports, notes, publications, photocopied clippings, legal documents, and press releases document the activities and responsibilities of Texas State Senator Drew Nixon from 1991 to 2000, and undated (bulk 1995-2000). The bill files were written by Senator Nixon and submitted during the 74th, 75th, and 76th Legislative Sessions. A few files document the work done by Senator Nixon on the Senate Intergovernmental Relations and State Affairs Committees in 1999 and 2000. The majority of the correspondence consists of constituent casework, in which Nixon and his staff attempted to assist his constituents in resolving personal problems. Some correspondence reflects public opinion on the bills and issues considered by the Senate during the 76th Legislative session (1999). District office files were created, collected, and maintained by the Senator's local staff. General office files document the internal working of Nixon's offices and include schedules, Governor's appointments, files of collected newsletters and press releases, and a few assorted subject files on redistricting, a juvenile curfew, and local office holders.

The files document the topics that interested Senator Nixon and his constituents. They include, among others, issues regarding property appraisal, municipal annexation, air and water quality issues (particularly surrounding the Angelina and Neches Rivers), liability, consanguinity, oil, mineral interests, a creosote superfund project, historically underutilized businesses, veterans, local roads and transportation, timber, education, the Montgomery County Hospital District, utilities, flooding, wastewater, and homeowner's associations.

To prepare this inventory, the described materials were cursorily reviewed to delineate series, to confirm the accuracy of contents lists, to provide an estimate of dates covered, and to determine record types.

Restrictions on Access
Because of the possibility that portions of these records fall under Public Information Act exceptions including, but not limited to, Texas Government Code, Chapter 306, an archivist must review these records before they can be accessed for research. The records may be requested for research under the provisions of the Public Information Act (V.T.C.A., Government Code, Chapter 552). The researcher may request an interview with an archivist or submit a request by mail, fax, or email including enough description and detail about the information requested to enable the archivist to accurately identify and locate the information requested. If our review reveals information that may be excepted by the Public Information Act, we are obligated to seek an open records decision from the Attorney General on whether the records can be released. The Public Information Act allows the Archives ten working days after receiving a request to make this determination. The Attorney General has 45 working days to render a decision. Alternately, the Archives can inform you of the nature of the potentially excepted information and if you agree, that information can be redacted or removed and you can access the remainder of the records.
