For the first 50 years of TACC’s existence, this was the Association’s only function—to keep the membership in compliance with all government regulations and to serve as a watchdog to protect the many legislative liberties of agriculture and cooperatives. This function is still foremost today and the impacts of a more urban policy-maker is increasingly making this segment more challenging.
Two of TACC’s strongest weapons in this defense are:
1. the state co-op political action committee–TACC-PAC–started by U.S. Congressman Charlie Stenholm in the late 1970s; and
2. the many task forces and coalitions TACC has been asked to serve on by state agency personnel, politicians and other associations.
