NACOGDOCHES, TX (KTRE) -

Less than 24 hours after Super Tuesday, state politicians and media will converge on Stephen F. Austin State University for the Lone Star Legislative Summit.

It happens every two years.

More than 20 state lawmakers are scheduled to attend the two day summit.

It begins Wednesday with a kick-off reception.

The first of five sessions will begin the following morning.

Keynote speaker is state comptroller Glenn Hegar. State Representative Travis Clardy (R-Nacogdoches) says other policy makers will be there too.

"We have new education commissioner Michael Morath coming to speak about education issues and some of his vision,” Clary said. “I think he's very creative and innovative person, and I look forward to that. We've also got Commissioner Chris Traylor, the director of the largest state agency, Health and Human Services to be here to talk about health care issues. And finally, and the most fun thing, will be the conversation about Texas music. The Texas Music Office director Brendon Anthony will be here and lead a panel on the importance of music and culture in Texas."

Anthony’s talk will help kick off the Nacogdoches Music Festival. The legislative summit is co-hosted by Clardy, State Senator Robert Nichols, SFA, and the Nacogdoches County Chamber of Commerce.
