What: Kick-off of Weekly Conference Calls with Conservative Legislators
Why: To unite, educate and empower the Texas conservative citizen movement around conservative reform efforts in the Texas Legislature
When: Thursday, March 5, 2015
Time: Promptly starts at 6 PM – 7 PM
Format: Grassroots America’s Executive Director JoAnn Fleming will moderate a statewide conference call with members of the Texas Legislature. She will schedule up to four legislative members each week and ask them to each talk about a bill of their choice. The legislators will lay out the bill, tell you why the bill is important, and tell you where the bill is in the legislative process. JoAnn will tell you how “we the people” can help move legislation.
Scheduled for this week are:
Rep. Matt Schaefer (HB 1973 – Lonestar Card (food stamp) Photo ID to end welfare benefits fraud)
Rep. Jonathan Stickland (HB 209 – Repeal in-state college tuition discounts for illegal aliens)
Rep. Matt Krause (HB 962 – Relating to the regulation of the amount of installed electric generation capacity – not allowing capacity markets in Texas)
Rep. Matt Rinaldi (HJR 16 – Proposing a constitutional amendment relating to the exclusive legislative duty to support and maintain an efficient system of public schools – ending school finance lawsuits and judicial control of the size of Texas government.)
