  1. additional notes as of 8am Thu May 9, 2013:
    SB241 would be voted on yesterday … Well, the vote never happened. 21 votes are needed and the votes are not there yet. The senators listed below are uncommitted and we need to help them make a decision. Please call these Senators, especially if you’re in their district, and ask them to support SB 241 Smart Meter Opt Out at No Charge .

    This bill would keep Texas from merging its electrical grid with the rest of the nation. If Texas merges its grid, Texas will lose its energy independence. This bill will also give every Texans the right to opt out of a Smart Meter and to ask that it be removed if one is already installed. Should Citizens have the right to remove a product from their home that they deem is harmful to their families? YES! Why should we be charged for something on our property we didn’t ask to have in the first place – these utility companies took a law that said encourage and have made it mandatory. These devices are not meters, they are remote control computers that are designed to communicate with every “smart appliance” in a similar manner to how your computer prints to a wireless printer.

    These are the senators that need to hear from us.
