This nonpartisan open-source project creates access to campaign finance information and bill information for Texas state politicians from the most recent (86th) legislative session. The project began at ATX Hack for Change in 2017, and is supported by Open Austin and Influence Texas P.B.C.

About Our Data

Legislature, Bill, and Voting records are provided by Open States, a project supported by the nonprofit Open Media Foundation that scrapes data from the Texas House and Senate journals. This app features records from the most recent legislative session.

Campaign finance records are supplied by the nonprofit Texans for Public Justice, which obtains Contribution and Expenditure data dutifully filed with the Texas Ethics Commission by all candidates, political committees, and political parties from the campaign cycle just prior to the current legislative session. This app shows the top 25 donors to each politician and the top 25 donations of each featured donor that has contributed an aggregate amount of $1,000 or more.
