MALC Membership

The Mexican American Legislative Caucus (MALC) was founded in 1973 in the Texas House of Representatives by a small group of lawmakers of Mexican American heritage for the purpose of strengthening their numbers and better representing a united Latino constituency across the state. MALC is the oldest and largest Latino legislative caucus in the United States.

In the 1990s, recognizing the growth of the Hispanic population in Texas and anticipating a new ethnic majority, MALC opened membership eligibility to House members of any race or ethnicity who represent majority-Latino constituencies.

As of 2017, MALC has a membership of 41 House members from all parts of the state and is the second largest caucus in the Texas Legislature. MALC Members sit on all but 3 House Committees in the Texas House of Representatives and work together on matters of consequence to our state’s large and growing Latino constituency.
