Reform Austin (RA) was created to inform Texans about politics and politicians. We produce high-quality investigative reporting and news analysis from a network of local correspondents to engage readers about what goes on behind the doors of our state Capitol through our daily news site, Reform Austin News.
Reform Austin is dedicated to increasing public awareness regarding the use of tax dollars and the policies that shape everyday life in Texas. We provide independent reporting for a better Texas and are focused on long-form, investigative and enterprise stories.

We believe that a story doesn’t always have to be written to be effective. We embrace a multi-platform, digital-first, engagement-driven approach to journalism for all audiences.

At RA we pride ourselves on using cutting-edge technology to deliver timely and accurate news content. Our platform utilizes both written and video AI technology to ensure that our readers and viewers have access to the latest news. We are committed to delivering high-quality news content that is reliable, informative, and accessible to all.
