The Texas Ethics Commission website is a great tool for tracking campaign finance information for Texas legislators.

Texans can see where lawmakers are getting their campaign money, who their biggest contributors are, and how legislators are spending that money. With just a few clicks, you can find campaign contributions of your current legislators, as well as for candidates for state representative, state senator, or any other statewide office.

All you need is an Internet connection and the name of the official you’d like to research.

This site walks you through the three simple steps that will show you how to do your own investigation. After you do research, you can take action by using the information to become a more educated voter, sharing your findings with the editor of your local paper and describe your results, or by writing a letter, making a call or sending an email to Texas law makers.

Thanks for working to make Texas government more transparent!
