The newly renamed Texas Indigent Defense Commission, formerly the Task Force, is holding its 2011 Indigent Defense Symposium in the Texas Capitol, today. It marks 10 years of the Texas Fair Defense Act, passed in the 2001 Texas Legislature.
It includes excellent programming, and it's being live-streamed via the Texas Senate website. Scroll to the Capitol Extension Auditorium and click to view using Real Player.
Because of the name change I am now adding a Texas Indigent Defense Commission category. New items involving the agency will be noted with that category. The Task Force on Indigent Defense category will remain in the index for older entries.
