The City of Mexia hosted the Texas Municipal League (TML) Region IX meeting on Sept. 28 at the Senior Citizens Center with a new face in leadership.
Hillsboro Mayor Edith Omberg, outgoing TML Region 9 President, introduced Mexia Council Member Judy Freeman Chambers as the incoming TML Region 9 President. Chambers expressed her gratitude to be able to serve in this capacity giving special recognition to the governing body of Mexia.
During the meeting JJ Rocha, TML Legislative Liaison, gave an update from the State’s 85th Legislative meeting in Austin that occurred on March 20. She provided three quotes mentioned during the meeting.
Governor Greg Abbott said, “Texas is being California-ized…As opposed to the state having to take multiple rifle-shot approaches at overriding local regulations, I think a broad-based law by the state of Texas that says across the board, the state is going to pre-empt local regulations, is a superior approach.”
