Subject: CORONA'S DIRTY TRICK-Please call Legislators today and tomorrow
"CORONA PULLS AN END RUN!! Facing possible defeat in the House, Sen. John Corona is tacking SB855 onto HB300, the TXDOT sunset bill, as Amendment #64.
This is a SLEAZY BACK-DOOR TACTIC and is a gross insult to the House. It prevents the House from having a fair and honest floor debate on the bill. If the Senate goes along, then HB300 will go to a conference committee and will come back to the House for final approval IN ITS ENTIRITY.
This is a mammoth bill with a lot of things in it. The House will be considering it with just hours left in the session knowing that if they vote it down, a special session will be required and THEY WILL GET THE BLAME.
Click the link below and go to our Facebook page and get the info you need to make calls in Recent News and the Wall Posts and Discussion Board. We need to call House members today on SJR52 (the constitutional amendment) and Senators today, tomorrow and possibly Monday on Amednment #64 to HB300. In particular, call Chris Harris (9), (512) 463-0109, and Florence Shapiro (8), (512) 463-0108.
Let them know North Texans don’t want this turkey and ask them to change their vote to NO. Here is a link to a list of Senators: http://www.facebook.com/l/;http://www.senate.state.tx.us/75r/senate/senmem.htm
