Your calls, e-mails, faxes, FB messages and Tweets are working! With the help of a contingent of about 25 House members, we were able to slow things down yesterday. The goal is to run out the clock on the session before the budget is adopted. This will trigger the Governor’s call for a special session on the 2014-2015 budget. We will have a better chance to cut spending in a special session.
The special interest lobbyists are crawling all over the Capitol and the establishment moderates are arm-twisting your elected officials. You must make your voice heard today or the liberals & special interests will win!
Legislature is in session over the weekend & through Monday. Please call, Tweet and/or Facebook message your State Rep. & your State Senator again now with a direct message that covers these points:

Call Gov. Perry’s comment line & tell him you don’t support the bloated budget. Ask him to veto HB 1025 and the budget if it passes & call a special session to cut spending! Governor’s open comment line: 1-800-8HELP TX or 1-800-843-5789. If you follow Rick Perry on Twitter or are a FB friend of his, post your message now!
