Folks, we are having a BIG impact on killing HB 300. We have a chance of a big victory by stopping this Frankenstein, 2,000 page toll road bill. We either need you at the State Capital tomorrow Sunday, 4PM or at home making calls especially to House Democratic leaders asking them to kill HB 300.

Just got word that the soonest the Legislature can take up HB 300 for final passage is 4:30 PM tomorrow (I'm relieved it doesn't interfere with church!). They must pass it by midnight (unless they suspend the rules, which could happen the way they've been going). So this is our window of time when we could use all the help we can get in Austin pulling members off the floor outside the 2nd floor House chamber, and asking them to KILL HB 300 and pass the safety net bill, HB 1959, which moves TxDOT's sunset to next session under a new Governor. A special session will just get us back in this same mess, with a bill that DOES NOT reform TxDOT, curb tolling, etc. because the Governor will not sign it. It could reap an even WORSE piece of legislation since the lobbyists will have more time to work the House.

Those who are able to help, please let me know via email and plan to meet me outside the House chamber on the 2nd floor of the main Capitol building at 4 PM (to give us time to inform you of what's still in the bill and to review our talking points).
