LP Report

With the 3rd special session underway, we wanted to update you on the work of the Legislative Priorities Committee.
Last summer, during the Republican Party of Texas (RPT) State Convention, delegates voted for eight legislative priorities that fall roughly into one of two categories.
The Texas Legislature is drawing to a close and we are beginning to get a clearer picture on wins and losses for this session. 
I am thrilled to report that, this past Friday evening, the Texas House cast a historic vote passing our major legislative priority bill, SB 14, banning gender mutilation of children.
The Texas Legislature, particularly the House of Representatives, is at a crossroads. While it is on the verge of doing great things for our citizens.
On Tuesday, our third Legislative Priority bill will have a vote on the House floor.  SB 14, by Rep. Oliverson and Sen. Campbell, protects Texas children from so-called gender transition practices.
Last summer at the Republican Party of Texas state convention, delegates voted “Protect Our Elections” as the top legislative priority. 
Although anything can still happen, if bills are not out of committee hearing by this Thursday, they are generally not going to pass.
The Texas Senate made last week a great one for children.  SB 14, Senator Campbell’s bill to stop gender mutilation of children, was successfully debated and passed by the Senate. 
The Legislative Session moves very quickly; before you know it, time is running short.  Many of the bills filed will not get past the first step of having a committee hearing. 
Last week, the Senate passed SB 14, a bill to ban the castration and mutilation of children for gender transition purposes.
The Legislature is in full swing, and there are multiple action items in this email. So please read it in its entirety!
