TABC Legislative Updates

Major changes from the 86th Legislature go into effect Sept. 1, 2021. See what this means for businesses on our TABC 2021 Changes page.

The Texas Alcoholic Beverage Code is subject to amendment by the Texas Legislature during regular or special sessions. The Legislature meets for regular sessions starting in January every odd-numbered year. Changes to the Code start on the effective date listed in a bill once the bill is passed by the Legislature and effectively signed into law by the Texas governor.
