Please involve your Conservative friends & neighbors in this Texas Special Session. It is an important 2nd chance to pass conservative legislation that didn’t make it through during the regular session.

The Left and their Lobbyists will be out in full force in the July – August Texas Special Session! 

We need as MANY conservatives as possible who will: Call, Email, Post on Facebook, & Tweet when it counts most. Read SB 715 Annexation Reform (Sen. Campbell) to learn how citizen activists successfully worked with Rep. Dan Huberty to get this important Freedom legislation out of the House Calendars committee with responsive activism.

It may not hurt to cordially remind them of it. (“Talk Softly; Carry a BIG Stick.)

  • VISIT your Rep. & Sen. in Austin, and/or
