The Clock is Ticking: Act Now to Support Crucial Texas Independence Bills

As time runs out in the current legislative session, your actions can significantly impact several key bills related to the political, cultural, and economic independence of Texas. These bills have made progress through the legislative process but require your support to ensure they are scheduled for a reading on the floor of the house.

House Calendars Committee 

If you can make it to Austin, you have an insider advantage when it comes to bills requiring action from the House Calendars committee. Visit the offices of the committee members and fill out the green (for bills you want scheduled) and red (for bills you don’t want scheduled) half-page cards available there. You’ll need some personal information, the bill number, and a brief description of why you support or oppose the bill. 

The following bills have passed the House committees and need scheduling for a reading on the floor of the House. Please call the committee members and ask them to support an immediate reading of the bills.
