VISITING THE CAPITOL

texas-state-capitol.jpg

The Capitol building is home to the Texas House of Representatives and the Texas Senate. This beautiful public building belongs to the people of Texas, and you should make plans to come visit. The 88th Regular Session of the Texas Legislature is underway now.

 

Rep. Thimesch's office is in E1.216 on Floor 1 of the Capitol Extension, and is where the House District 65 staff operates during the legislative session. All constituents are welcome to visit at any time.

Please note that if you want to visit with Kronda while at the Capitol, we encourage you to make an appointment, to ensure that she will be available. You are of course welcome to visit at any time without an appointment; just please know the Representative might be on the House floor or in another meeting at the time.

Getting Around in the Capitol
[If you enter the Capitol through the main building, you need to head north toward the North Wing Elevators and go down to get to the HD-65 office, which is located in the Extension.]
In the main original "domed" building of the Texas State Capitol are the chambers of the House and Senate, and other function rooms, along with a few members' offices.

What is the "Extension"?
Opened to the public in 1993, the Capitol Extension added needed space while still allowing an uninterrupted northern view of the Capitol building, thanks to being mostly underground with a unique feature known as the "light courts".  Most of the House and Senate members' offices, and most of the committee meeting rooms, are located in the Extension -- along with the all-important Capitol Grill and the gift shop.
