IRCOT ACTION ALERT FOR TUESDAY, MAY 31ST
The 81st Legislature ended with a Democrat filibuster of a key budget bill preventing it’s passage. The Texas Constitution requires the Legislature to pass a budget, and a Special Session has been called by the Governor to start today.
Lt. Gov. Dewhurst already announced that the 2/3 rule will not be in effect. This would mean that only a simple majority, or 16 votes, would be required to pass a bill in the Senate. This is the opportunity that we need to pass important immigration related bills. However, the very latest word is that only 2 bills, SB 1811 and SB 23 have been added to the special session charge! This is unacceptable in light of the recent killing of a Houston Police Officer by an illegal alien driving drunk.
A request from IRCOT was sent to the Governor asking for the
addition of 3 key immigration bills to the special session charge!
Now, we need your calls and faxes to Gov. Perry!
Ask him to add:
HB 12 Anti-Sanctuary City
HB 1275 E-Verify
HB 608 Cost of benefits to illegal aliens
