Talked about HB 1215 (Texas Sovereignty Act, of which, Rep Metcalf Authored) to get his perspective of that bill. He said HB 1215 basically enforces our 10th Amendment Rights specific to Texas Law and Statutes. I made the point that HB 1215 was OK but only for the short term and that HB 1359 is the long term solution for Texas sovereignty.

Left him name and contact number for follow up.|
