Demographic Composition of the Texas State Legislature

General Description: Pale, Male, and Stale

It’s often been said the Texas State Legislature is “pale, male, and stale.” This may not be quite as accurate as in the past, but the Texas State Legislature is predominantly white, male, and middle-aged, making it far less diverse than Texas as a whole.

Descriptive data on the composition of the Texas State Legislature is available at the Legislative Reference Library.
