FRIDAY IS THE LAST DAY TO FILE LEGISLATION
Do you support the 10th Amendment?
Do you think amending the U.S. Constitution will restore your freedom?
CALL YOUR STATE LEGISLATORS (REPRESENTATIVE and SENATOR)
HERE IS A DRAFTED RESOLUTION WAITING FOR AN AUTHOR TO CARRY IT (https://drive.google.com/file/d/0B5osUEitCWr0dzNqWC0xQ3Fyb28/view?usp=sharing )
Your legislator can not say it’s too late to work on this. NOT SO. It’s been processed by the Texas Legislative Council (see the alpha-numeric number at the bottom left corner of each page) and ready to go, just sitting at the Texas Legislative Council waiting for him or her to pick it up and file it. FRIDAY IS THE LAST DAY TO FILE LEGISLATION
The Texas House Select Committee on State & Federal Power will hold their first hearing on Thursday (Feb28).
The Agenda has one (1) item on it:
“to consider issues relating to Article V of the United States Constitution. Invited testimony only.”
The committee chair and vice chair have authored bills to “support” an Article V Convention. The chair (Phil King) has authored a bill on how to select Texas delegates to an Article V Convention. The vice chair (Paul Workman) has authored 2 bills that call for an Article V Convention (one to impose fiscal restraints on the federal government, and one to provide for a federal balanced budget).
How likely is it that those “invited” to testify will be equally split between those who “support” and those who “oppose” an Article V Convention? Will there even be testimony allowed for those who oppose such a convention???
No one has filed a resolution to Rescind all Previous Calls for an Article V Convention so one can expect a stacked testimony.
Who will support the Texas State Republican Executive Committee’s wishes to rescind all previous calls for such a convention ????
