Something you see in political publications from time to time is a piece about "the top 50 wealthiest members of Congress", or "the average wealth of senators". However, I've found that information about local state legislators is scant or unavailable.

In my state, Texas, state legislators are paid very little in salary. It is my speculation that while this seems romantically righteous (citizen legislators, not milking their position for money), it has the practical effect of excluding everyone except doctors, lawyers, and the independently wealthy. Are there any documented sources that can tell us what the personal wealth of Texas legislators is? Anything regarding total net worth, annual income, or the like is welcome.
