Rahul Sreenivasan

Policy Advisor


Rahul joined Texas 2036 in October 2022 and covers the policy areas of state budget and government performance as well as workforce. Additionally, he works on policy issues related to IT modernization, cybersecurity, artificial intelligence, state parks and the future of transportation.

Prior Work Experience

Rahul came to Texas 2036 with nearly 15 years in and around policy and politics, most recently as Chief of Staff and General Counsel to State Rep. Armando Walle. Rahul’s expertise and candor on a variety of Texas budget and policy issues, as well as on legislative process and the ins and outs of the legislative session, came to be sought after by many of his peers.

Rahul previously served as an aide to former State Rep. Scott Hochberg and as a clerk in the House Chief Clerk’s Office. After finishing the bar exam, Rahul left Texas for D.C., later traveling around the country on a presidential campaign. His time away from Texas only strengthened the desire to come back home to work around the Texas Capitol—as well as be closer to his now-spouse Erin. Rahul, a native of Amarillo, now spends most of his free time chasing around his three young kids with Erin.
