Statutory revision

Texas Government Code section 323.007 requires the Texas Legislative Council to make a complete, non substantive revision of Texas statutes. When the program is complete, all general and permanent statutes will be included in one of 27 codes.

Proposed codes are generally prepared in the form of revisor's reports, which contain the proposed language of the new code, the language of the old statutes, and brief notes. This page provides links to statutory revision documents related to the initial adoption of codes and code sections.


1 The Criminal Procedure Code has not yet been enacted. A Title 2, Code of Criminal Procedure was enacted in 1985 and codified miscellaneous criminal procedure statutes omitted from the 1965 code.
2 The revision of the Family Code was a substantive revision. No statutory revision documents for the Family Code are available at this time.
