Texas Leads!

Special Session Scorecard

Are Special Session committees the graveyard where House bills go to die?

Governor Abbott called for a Special Session because many of the legislative items Texans want passed were not given proper consideration during regular session by House leadership. Will they repeat the same maneuvers to thwart legislative progress in Texas?

The scorecard shows the bottleneck in the Texas House.

CONVENTION OF STATES ACTION TEXAS SUPPORTS SPECIAL SESSION

COS Texas Grassroots Action and Advocacy at the Capitol

The Convention of States Action Texas is watching and scoring state legislators during Gov. Greg Abbott’s call for a Special Session. There were 20 items on Gov. Abbott’s call and the grassroots understand that legislators must pick a side—they are either on the side of the People or the side of obstructionists.

COSAction Texas activists meet at the Capitol in Austin with Freedom Caucus House members Briscoe Cain, Matt Schaeffer, and Matt Rinaldi.

The Special Session presents a rare opportunity for diverse, like-minded groups from all over the state to stand in solidarity against the delay tactics under Speaker Joe Straus. Hashtag #PassThemAll has become a clarion call for activists who want decision-making returned to the people and their communities.

Lt. Gov. Patrick Congratulates the COS Grassroots

The Convention of States Texas team recently received a letter from Lt. Gov. Dan Patrick congratulating us on our success in passing the Convention of States Project resolution. Patrick, who as Lieutenant Governor also serves as the President of the Senate, was instrumental in bringing about the passing vote in the Senate calling for the amendments convention. Ever the grassroots champion, the Texas Lieutenant Governor partnered with the Convention of States Texas grassroots army and Governor Greg Abbott, and included the Convention of States resolution as one of his legislative priorities for the 2017 session.

TEXAS BECOMES STATE #11

VICTORY IN THE HOUSE MAKES TEXAS #11!

As several hundred COS supporters gathered at the capitol in Austin on the morning of May 4, the mood was optimistic. The Texas team was excited about the impending House floor vote on the Convention of States resolution, SJR 2, which had garnered 79 sponsors in addition to the main author, Rep. Rick Miller of Sugar Land. With 150 members in the House of Representatives, only 76 votes were needed to pass, so we felt we were virtually assured of a winning vote.

On To The House Floor! UPDATE!!

Editor's Note: Date changed from May 3rd to May 4th

HOUSE FLOOR VOTE, THURSDAY, MAY 4TH!!

The Convention of States Texas Resolution, SJR2, is scheduled for the Texas House Floor on Wednesday, May 4th!

WE HAVE ONE LAST BATTLE TO FIGHT!!

During a last minute maneuver, a DIFFERENT VERSION of SJR2 was "substituted" in committee for our Convention of States resolution!

All parties involved agreed that this was the best option to pass our resolution out of committee. We commend our Grassroots Army for keeping up the pressure and being positive, polite, and professional!! 

BREAKING NEWS! Convention of States Texas Leadership discuss the latest from the Capitol!

This new version of SJR2 will "kill" the Convention of States in Texas, unless it is restored on the House Floor! Which is exactly the plan, to "clean up" SJR2 with a friendly amendment.

YOUR RELENTLESS PURSUIT OF RESTORING OUR REPUBLIC HAS PAID OFF!!

Great job, everyone!!

NOW IS THE TIME TO CONTINUE OUR MOMENTUM AND FINISH STRONG!! THIS IS OUR MOMENT TO DEMONSTRATE THE SIZE AND STRENGTH OF THE TEXAS GRASSROOTS !!

THE MOST IMPORTANT THING YOU CAN DO IS SHOW UP AT THE CAPITOL, ON THURSDAY MAY 4TH, FOR THE FLOOR VOTE!!!

Texas is One Step Closer! On to Calendars!

Texas has moved One Step Closer to joining with 10 other States in Calling for a Convention of States!

THANK YOU FOR YOUR INCREDIBLE, RELENTLESS, PROFESSIONAL EFFORTS!! 

The tireless efforts of the grassroots have produced a committee victory! Well done everyone! We are almost across the finish line; we just have one last committee vote - CALENDARS, to get to the Floor! Will you help us make Texas State #11?

TODAY'S VICTORY OUT OF COMMITTEE IS YOUR VICTORY!

The Texas House Select Committee on State & Federal Power & Responsibility passed House Joint Resolution 39 (HJR 39), and it's Senate companion SJR 2, out of committee just minutes ago! Committee members demonstrated both leadership and attentiveness to the wishes of YOU, and more than 120,000 Texas grassroots activists.

Representative Rick Miller, from Sugar Land, TX (HD 26) is once again championing the Convention of States resolution in the Texas House. Earlier this year, the Senate companion version, Senate Resolution SJR 2, passed the full Senate. Once HJR 39 reaches the floor of the Texas House, a simple rule allows SJR 2 to be swapped in and voted on by the entire Texas House, thus fulfilling the necessary steps of one version of legislation passing both chambers to be complete. The Committee also passed SJR 2 at the same time, with the same vote.

The Governor's signature is not required on HJR 39/SJR 2, though Governor Abbott's signature on this legislation would be a foregone conclusion, as this is his premier legislative package this session.

Texans Do the Hard Thing!

THANK YOU!

Convention of States Texas volunteers waiting in line for the hearing room to open.2017-04-13_-_Outside_the_Committee_Room.JPG

With about 250 Convention of States volunteers attending the House Committee hearing on Thursday, April 13, we outnumbered the opposition 5 to 1! We had 70+ Convention of States supporters register to testify in FAVOR of HJR39. This is simply EXTRAORDINARY! YOU WERE AMAZING. This was absolutely one of our finest hours. We closed down the Capitol.

After 7 hours and 45 minutes of passionate and raw testimony, we believe that we did make a difference with key committee members who admirably stayed throughout the entirety of testimony, Chairman Drew Darby, Rep. Larry Gonzales and Rep. Rafael Anchia, along with HJR39 sponsor, Rep. Rick Miller. Please visit their facebook pages or call their offices next week to say thank you. This is also very important.

CONVENTION OF STATES LONESTAR UPDATE

Call to Action! The Next 24 Hours Can Push Texas Convention of States out of Committee!!

COS_TX_FB_Countdown_Clock.jpg


The finish line is so close... After nearly 8 hours of testimony last Thursday, the Texas House Select Committee on State & Federal Power & Responsibility left HJR 39 "pending", meaning they could consider voting on it early this week!

Texas Senate Leads the Way!

In the spirit of the celebration of Texas Independence week, the Texas Senate, led by Primary Author Senator Brian Birdwell, passed the Convention of States Project Texas resolution, SJR2, on a 20-11 straight party line vote.

Pictured above are all 20 Texas GOP Senators (standing, L-R, Creighton, Huffines, Hancock, Nichols, Buckingham, Huffman, Hall, Kolkhorst, Van Taylor, Hughes, Schwertner, Perry, Campbell, Bettencourt (seated), Larry Taylor, Nelson, Seliger, Burton, Birdwell, Estes), Lieutenant Governor Dan Patrick, and Governor Greg Abbott (both seated), last November celebrating Governor Abbott's birthday. All 22 elected officials are champions for the Convention of States in Texas!

The vote continues the momentum toward final passage in Texas this session.

Getting through the Senate became a top priority for Convention of States after May, 2015, when the resolution failed to pass out of the Senate State Affairs Committee.

The Senate win culminates from a combination of the outreach by the massive grassroots army of activists in the state, the full support of Gov. Abbott, and Lt. Gov. Patrick’s unwavering leadership in the Senate.
