For over 30 years, CPPP has worked across Texas and at the State Capitol to address problems facing Texans by supporting practical policy solutions that improve lives. Our trusted analysis and collaborative approach has never been more urgent. The current federal administration and Congress continue to pursue an agenda that threatens public education, access to affordable healthcare, and safety net programs. This federal climate has emboldened Texas lawmakers to seek policies that will harm families and communities, such as mandatory work requirements for Medicaid.

With your Amplify Austin support, CPPP will provide fact-based policy solutions, act as a voice for hard-working Texans, and build momentum for change.

"The primary source for detailed analysis on almost any legislative issue affecting low-to-moderate-income Texans." -The Dallas Morning News

"I couldn't be the legislator that I am with you. You have made me a better person, leader, legislator. I am so grateful that you are part of my journey and process." -Member of the Texas House of Representatives

"Thanks for sending over your post about cuts to women's health programs -- it's really so good. Not only factually so rich, but incredibly helpful coming from a neutral source." -Annie's List

"Just wanted to say thanks for today's school finance presentation. I've probably sat through 10 to 15 of those over my decade in the Capitol, and that was without a doubt one of the best. And I'm not just blowing smoke. You provide enough detail so that it's understandable - but you don't get bogged down in the details so as to slow everything down"
