In its “31 Days, 31 Ways” special coverage, the Texas Tribune is dedicating August to highlight 31 pieces of important legislation from the recent 84th Texas Legislature. One of the thirty-one is the new Ombudsman position created as a safeguard for Texas’ foster children.

Thank you to everyone who helped pass Senate Bill 830, which was authored by Senator Lois W. Kolkhorst, R-Brenham, and sponsored in the House by Rep. Harold V. Dutton, Jr., D-Houston.
