Try the Texas Internet Providers Association.  Active.  Effective.  Biggest
in the country, we think.

We've been prettty effective on state taxation issues; turned back an
attempt to require municipal franchises; participate in state regulatory
proceedings that affect us, and have semi-monthly meetings in different
areas of the state where vendors fight to make presentations and get
shredded by members  (one gave away an $18,000 server as a door prize).

We're sending a delegation to GIAW.

I commend the effort and am sure we can provide helpful information.
