Focus - What is the Texas Capitol Preservation Board? . . .

The Texas Capitol Preservation Board was created in 1983 by the 68th Texas Legislature and was charged with the responsibility of preserving and maintaining the Texas State Capitol and the General Land Office. The Board's membership is comprised of the Governor, the Lieutenant Governor, the Speaker of the House, and the chairs of the Senate and House Administration Committees. Since its creation, the agency's responsibilities have grown. It now maintains many other state buildings and provides additional services. Among the Preservation Board's responsibilities are:

The Texas Capitol Preservation Board also offers a number of internship opportunities for undergraduate and graduate students that provide experience in public administration, facilities management, historical collections/curatorial, and visitor service.
