Texas state Rep. Erin Zwiener, D-Driftwood, will hold town halls in Buda and San Marcos this week to update constituents on the 86th legislative session, which ended in May, and to gather feedback from the public on priorities.

The 86th legislative session was Zwiener’s first after she was elected in November 2018, defeating her opponent to take the place of departing state Rep. Jason Issac, R-Dripping Springs. During the sessions, she was a part of several pieces of legislation that affect local cities, including an aquifer storage and recovery bill backed by the city of Buda, the Hill Country Scenic Highways Bill and a series of bills related to eminent domain and pipeline regulation.


Zwiener represents both Hays and Blanco counties; she recently established a district office in downtown Kyle.

The town halls will take place Nov. 12 at the Buda Public Library, 504 E. Loop St., Buda, and Nov. 14 at the San Marcos Public Library, 625 E. Hopkins St., San Marcos. Both events run from 7-8 p.m.
