The Texas Nationalist Movement is releasing its legislative priorities for the 2019 session of the Texas Legislature. Divided into the three main areas of the TNM’s mission, the legislative priorities represent policy initiatives that are strongly supported by members of the organization.
While the TNM will likely come out in support of other pieces of legislation during the session, these priorities are initiatives that have been created or spearheaded by the organization. Both members and supporters are encouraged to contact their Representatives and Senators to express their support for these priorities.
