Agency History

The Texas Senate is one arm of the Legislature of the State of Texas (the other being the Texas House of Representatives), 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. By virtue of office, the lieutenant governor is president of the senate, with the right to debate and vote on questions in committee of the whole and the right to cast the deciding vote when the chamber is equally divided. The senate elects one of its members president pro tempore to perform the duties of the lieutenant governor during his or her absence or disability, or when the office is vacant. The 1876 Constitution fixes the number of senators at 31, elected from senatorial districts according to state constitutional guidelines to serve overlapping four-year terms. A senator must be at least 26 years old, a qualified voter, and a resident of Texas for at least five 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. Senate committees are usually charged with a particular purpose by the lieutenant governor, although this may also be accomplished by a resolution adopted by the senate. 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 senate 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 senate functions through committees set up under its own rules. By custom the president of the senate appoints standing, special, and conference committees, although the senate 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. The senate has 16 standing committees: Administration; Business and Commerce; Criminal Justice; Education; Finance; Government Organization; Health and Human Services; Intergovernmental Relations; International Relations and Trade; Jurisprudence; Natural Resources; Nominations; Redistricting; State Affairs; Transportation and Homeland Security; and Veterans Affairs and Military Installations.

Biographical Sketch

Texas State Representative and Senator Frank L. Madla served ten terms in the Texas House of Representatives (1973-1993), and three terms in the Texas Senate (1993-2006). He represented House District 57-A (1973-1982) and later House District 117 (1983-1993), both Bexar County/San Antonio; and the 19th Senatorial District (from 1993-1995 designated as the 24th Senatorial District), which includes 21 counties of west Texas, and portions of El Paso and Bexar counties.

A Democrat, Senator Madla served on several senate committees including Intergovernmental Relations (1993-2006; chair 1999-2006), Health and Human Services (1993-2001), Economic Development (1993-1999), State Affairs (2001-2006), Oversight of Edwards Aquifer (2001-2006), Infrastructure Development and Security (2003-2004), and Transportation and Homeland Security (2005-2006). During the 78th Texas Legislature Interim, Lieutenant Governor David Dewhurst appointed Madla to the Select Committee on Water Policy and named him chair of its Subcommittee on Lease of State Water Rights. Other appointments include the Select Committee on Workers' Compensation (2004) and the Advisory Committee on Rock Crushers and Quarries (2003-2004). Madla also served on the Border Legislative Initiative, a joint project administered by the Council of State Governments-WEST and the South Legislative Conference, which exists to help state legislators in the ten states along the U.S.-Mexico border develop binational partnerships to address common challenges and opportunities.

Senator Madla graduated with Bachelor and Master of Arts degrees from St. Mary's University in his hometown of San Antonio. Early in his career Madla spent ten years teaching junior high school, and he later worked as a private consultant, a life and health insurance agent, and a real estate broker. After losing the Democratic Party primary election for his district in March 2006, Senator Madla retired from the Texas Senate on May 31, 2006. Frank Madla died in a fire at his home in San Antonio on November 24, 2006.

Scope and Contents of the Records

The Texas Senate is one arm of the Legislature of the State of Texas (the other being the Texas House of Representatives), which the Texas Constitution (Article III, Section 1) vests with all legislative power of the state. Records of Texas State Senator Frank Madla reflect his efforts to represent the needs and concerns of the 19th Senatorial District (and from 1973-1993, House District 57-A and House District 117 in the House of Representatives), through his legislative proposals, his work on senate committees, and the working relationships he and his staff formed with agencies and officials at the state, federal and local level, and with private and non-profit organizations. Types of records include correspondence, legislative bills and bill copies, bill analyses, notes, publications, reports, printed material, fiscal notes, legislative records, photographs, videocassettes, press releases, proclamations, clippings, memoranda, and a CD-ROM, dating 1935-2006, bulk 1993-2006. Major topics among these records are intergovernmental relations; natural resources, especially water use and regulation; public health; and social services.

Bill files document the legislation Madla created, sponsored, or had interest in during the 71st through 79th Legislatures (1989-2005), serving first in the House of Representatives, and from 1993 forward in the Senate. Additional bill files are included within Intergovernmental Relations Committee files, spanning the 75rd to 79th Legislatures (1997-2006). Madla served as chair of that committee from 1999 to 2006. Subject and hearing files are also within that series, as are hearing files of the Senate Interim Committee on Annexation, whose purpose overlapped with one of the charges of the Intergovernmental Relations Committee. Select Committee on Water Policy hearing files of the 78th Legislative Interim, 2004, show public comment and committee deliberations concerning various ground and surface water law, policy and management issues.

Redistricting correspondence documents Madla's communications with constituents, state agencies, local officials, private and non-profit organizations, citizens of Texas, and the public at large regarding their opinions and concerns on issues affecting his senate district and the state at large. Constituent casework consists of communications with constituents concerning their personal problems and issues in matters where assistance from federal or state agencies was needed.

Subject files demonstrate the senator's work, advocacy, and involvement with state and federal agencies, state officials, local authorities, private organizations, constituents, and the general public. Many subject files were likely compiled to be used as research in the proposal of legislation. Several subject files document his service on the Senate Committee on Intergovernmental Relations and the Subcommittee on Native American Affairs

Office files of Madla's Capitol office in Austin and district office in San Antonio reveal efforts of his office to provide the senator's constituency with news of his legislative work and to solicit their opinions, to gather press reportage concerning the senator, to preserve speeches he gave, and to document recognition of the senator's achievements.

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.

Texas Senate Intergovernmental Relations Committee records, 1935-2006, bulk 1997-2006,
12 cubic ft.

The Texas Senate Intergovernmental Relations Committee studies and prepares legislation on issues involving statutory, regulatory, and fiscal relationships among government entities from federal, state, county, city, and local levels. Records of the committee, of which Senator Madla was a member during the 73rd to 79th Legislatures (1993-2006; chair, 1999-2006), include bill files, charges, reports, hearing files, subject files, and videocassettes, 1935-2006, bulk 1997-2006. Charges of the committee during the time period of these records include studying aspects of design-build bidding, Councils of Governments, municipal annexation, property owners associations, special districts, growth in unincorporated areas, emergency response systems, document copy fees, rural housing and economic needs, floodplain mapping, low-income home ownership, and the Texas wine producing industry. Subject files deal solely with the Texas wine producing industry. Bill files from the 77th Legislature, 2001, are not included among these records. Hearing files include those from the Senate Interim Committee on Annexation, of which Senator Madla was chair, and whose purpose overlapped with one of the charges of the Intergovernmental Relations Committee. The Intergovernmental Relations Committee's web page at http://www.senate.state.tx.us/75r/Senate/commit/c520/c520_79.htm features video/audio archives of each of the committee hearings and the committee's final report from the 76th Legislature (1999) forward.

Texas Senate Select Committee on Water Policy hearing files, 2004,
1 cubic ft.

The Texas Senate Select Committee on Water Policy was charged during the 78th Legislative Session Interim to study all issues related to ground and surface water law, policy and management, including, but not limited to: the role of federal, state, regional and local governments, and their coordination in setting consistent, nondiscriminatory water policies; the authority of the Texas Commission on Environmental Quality (TCEQ) as it relates to water contracts; the role of the Edwards Aquifer Authority; the role of groundwater conservation districts; regional water planning process; conjunctive use of both ground and surface water resources; rule of capture; historic use standards; water infrastructure and financing; interbasin transfers; junior water rights; conservation; water quality standards; drought preparedness; and water marketing. The committee was also to monitor the three on-going demonstration desalination projects by the Texas Water Development Board as one step toward securing an abundant water supply to meet Texas' future water supply needs; and to study regulatory barriers that impair cost effectiveness of desalination (coastal and brackish) and how to facilitate use of this water source by municipalities. A Subcommittee on the Lease of State Water Rights was formed to study proposals to lease permanent school fund and permanent university lands and their water rights for the purposes of developing and marketing water. Records of the committee are hearing files, including witness biographical information, written testimony and supplementary information, a CD-ROM, and electronic slide presentation printouts, all dated 2004. Senator Kenneth Armbrister served as chair of the committee, and Senator Frank Madla was one of the ten additional members. The committee's web page at http://www.senate.state.tx.us/75r/Senate/commit/c750/c750_78.htm features video/audio archives of each of the committee hearings, the committee's final report, and a link to the subcommittee's own web page.

Records consist of correspondence, speeches, presentations, newsletters, questionnaires, press releases, biographical information, and awards, 1973-2006, bulk 1996-2006. One file of constituent casework is present; see the series Constituent casework for further examples. See the series Subject files for additional speeches and other office files.
Arrangement
These records are arranged in the somewhat random order in which they arrived from the legislator's office.
Preferred Citation
(Identify the item), Office files, Records of Senator Frank Madla, Senate, Texas Legislature. Archives and Information Services Division, Texas State Library and Archives Commission.
Restrictions on Access
Materials do not circulate, but may be used in the State Archives search room (Room 100). Materials will be retrieved from and returned to storage areas by staff members.
Because of the possibility that portions of these records fall under Public Information Act exceptions including, but not limited to: social security numbers (V.T.C.A., Government Code, Section 552.147); home addresses, phone numbers, social security numbers, and personal family information of government employees and officials (V.T.C.A., Government Code, Section 552.117); and privacy (V.T.C.A., Government Code, Section 552.101) 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 (Texas State Library and Archives Commission, P. O. Box 12927, Austin, TX 78711), fax (512-463-5436), email (Dir_Lib@tsl.state.tx.us), or see our web page (http://www.tsl.state.tx.us/agency/customer/pia.html). Include enough description and detail about the information requested to enable the archivist to accurately identify and locate the information. 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.
