Well, the last email that I sent you was just the update on the fight. Now the upcoming hearing in the Texas Capitol:
It will deal with the following bills: SJR 2 the actual application for A Convention of the States by State Senator Brian Birdwell et al and be conducted by the Senate State Affairs Committee.
SB 21 the measure that would purport to write rules and regulations for the Texas Delegates to such a convention by Senator Birdwell et al. BTW, most legal authorities as well as the Congressional Research Service maintain that the U. S. Congress would set the standards, et al as part of their duty to “call” a convention upon the receipt of the requisite number of applications for a convention.
Time: 9:00 a.m.;
Location: Senate Chamber
Participants are allowed to testify up to two minutes. If the testimony is written then you must submit 20 copies to the committee clerk with your name on each one of them.
Here is the committee, its officers, members, etc.:
Chairman Senator Joan Huffman (R) Vice-Chairman Senator Bryan Hughes (R)
Clerk–Addison Reagan 512-463-0380 <(512)%20463-0380>
Senator Brian Birdwell (R) Senator Brandon Creighton (R) Senator Craig Estes (R) Senator Eddie Lucio, Jr. (D) Senator Jane Nelson (R) Senator Charles Schwertner (R) Senator Judith Zaffrini (D)
If you can attend this event, that would be super. And by all means bring JBS trifolds on Con Con with you.And at the very least we would want you to activate your chapter/committee telephone/email tree to apply pressure on these committee members to say NO to Con Con no matter what it is called.
Colonel David Carter of Temple and his team has been faithfully going to the Legislature for the last few weeks. Let’s give them and Barbara Harless a “big shout-out” for being the spearpoints for our statewide effort to: Choose Freedom–Stop A Con-Con.
I will not be able to be at this hearing as we are having our monthly Business & Professional Chapter Luncheon with a guest speaker in Houston that same day.
Thank you for all that you do!
