While Rick Perry is bringing national ridicule (again) on Texas with his foolishness on secession, the bum still wants to grab Texans’ land for a project 99% of us oppose — the Trans-Texas Corridor.
What can we do? Help get the eminent domain reform bills out of committee! We need to hammer the Committee offices (don’t be mean, but be firm) now and next week!!
Three Easy Steps (4 if you’re really mad)!
1. No matter where you live in Texas, call the Committee offices below and urge them to get House Bill 1483 and Senate Bill 18 out of their respective committees right away!
Senate State Affairs Commitee: 512-463-0380 (Senate Bill 18) House Land & Resource Committee: 512-463-1623 (House Bill 1483)
2. Below my signature are links to the full Committees. If you live in these districts, please call them too.
3. Forward this email to all you know in Texas.
4. Optional, but can be VERY helpful. Write a very brief letter to the editor of your favorite or local newspaper!
Get after it y’all!
