October 2, 2017 – Today we released the application for the Spring 2018 class of the Texas Legislative Internship Program – TLIP. I was inspired to create TLIP in 1990 because my mentor, the late Congressman Mickey Leland, stressed the importance of using one’s individual success to provide opportunities for others.
What began as a small group of students 26 years ago has blossomed into one of the most successful legislative internship programs in the nation. TLIP has provided more than 680 students valuable experiences in the Texas Legislature, the offices of the Texas Governor, Lieutenant Governor, and the Chief Justice of the Supreme Court, city and county offices, and even Texas Monthly magazine.
