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 twenty-one 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 2008, the house has 40 standing committees:

  • Agriculture and Livestock
  • Appropriations
  • Border and International Affairs
  • Business and Industry
  • Calendars
  • Civil Practices
  • Corrections
  • County Affairs

Biographical Sketch

Texas State Representative Ron Clark (Ronald H. Clark) served three terms in the Texas House of Representatives (1997-2002), representing House District 62, encompassing Grayson and Fannin Counties. A Republican, he served on several house committees including: Judicial Affairs (1997-1998), Urban Affairs (1997-2000), Pensions and Investments (1999-2000), and the Select Committee on Teacher Health Insurance (1999-2002). In 2001 he was named to the Civil Practices Committee, the Economic Development Committee, and the Rules and Resolutions Committee. Clark won re-election in 2002, but less than three weeks after his victory he resigned to take up his appointment as a federal judge for the U.S. District Court, Eastern Division of Texas.

Ron Clark was born in 1953 in Caripito, Venezuela. He obtained bachelor and master degrees in economics from the University of Connecticut, and later received a doctorate in jurisprudence from the University of Texas at Austin. After college, Clark joined the U.S. Army where he qualified as an Airborne Ranger and served in a tank battalion of the 2nd Armored Division as a platoon leader and as company executive officer in both Texas and Germany. He was a partner in the law firm of Wolfe, Clark, Henderson & Tidwell, L.L.P., board certified in civil trial law and civil appellate law by the Texas Board of Legal Specialization. He served as city attorney for both home rule and general law cities and represented cities, counties and water districts in litigation. Clark was the chief consultant and lecturer for the Legislative Update seminars for the Texas Municipal Clerks Certification Program, University of North Texas, Denton. He is the author of the Texas Municipal Law and Procedure Manual, 2nd ed. (1989), a book widely distributed throughout the State of Texas and used by municipal officials and Texas attorneys.

During his service in the Texas Legislature, Clark was named Legislator of the Year by the Texas Purchasing Management Association, Distinguished Legislator by the Republican Caucus, and Legislator of the Year by the Texas Motorcycle Roadriders Association and Texoma ABATE, a motorcycle advocacy group. He was recognized by the Texas Municipal Clerks Association for service to city clerks in Texas.

Clark's memberships include the Republican Veterans of Texas, Amvets Post 47, and American Legion Post 29. He has been active in Grayson County civic and community volunteer organizations and has served the Boy Scouts of America in numerous capacities.
