With the help of our heroes today, Rep. David Simpson (R-Longview) and Tracy King (D-Ulvalde) – we cut Rep. Lyle Larson off at the pass today. Larson was forced to pull down his amendment in attempt to slip Gridzilla through the House on Senate Bill 1301.
But, hold on to your horses. Rep. Larson is looking for another vehicle to attach his bill to as early as THIS Sunday.
So…what can you do?
- Call your State Representative and your State Senator’s offices in Austin on Saturday to urge them NOT to support any California-style water pipeline system that would drain rural Texas and help developers continue building in areas without their own local water supply.
- You can also ask your friends to do the same.
- Find Your State Rep and Senator here -- now keep after him, y'all!
We will have our regular Saturday conference call at 9 am tomorrow to update you on the status of all our work on legislation. If you need the number, please send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org or call us at 512-213-4511.
Don't let these deperados get away with it -- our water, our wallets or our petition rights!
