One of the state's most powerful lobbying groups is already laying the groundwork for the next legislative session.

More than 100 members of the Texas Silver Haired Legislature gathered in College Station Wednesday to discuss issues affecting seniors. Among those, transportation in rural areas and access to healthcare.

During the past legislative session, the group recommended a total of 36 bills to state lawmakers. "Our recommendations then hopefully will be written into bills that will be signed by the governor and become law," said Oscar Garcia, Texas Silver Haired Legislature Speaker Pro Tem.

The Silver Haired Legislature also has a national presence lobbying both the U.S. House and Senate.
