2021 Texas Legislature Bills Filed



Now that our State legislature is in session, we will do our best to keep your all abreast of the happenings in Austin. It is of vital importance that your representatives are sharing from you - and that you attend hearings if you can on matters important to you. Nothing gets their attention like US testifying.

 

The link below is the most updated files I have on currently proposed legislative items. Along the left side of the spreadsheet, each item is linked to the State of Texas website. There - you can sign up for email alerts on each piece of legislation you wish.

 

When you get into the spreadsheet, CTRL-F on your keyboard and search for representatives or subjects you are interested in to more easily navigate the lengthy document. Also, on the bottom of the spreadsheet there are a number of tabs to change chambers of the State legislature etc.

President's News

Kristin Tassin, FBRW President



We demolish arguments and every pretension that sets itself up against the knowledge of God, and we take captive every thought to make it obedient to Christ.” 2 Cor. 10:5

 

I start every day by reading scripture. It’s a habit that helps me focus daily on what’s important in life instead of the stresses that demand my attention. It also helps me keep perspective amidst the barrage of noise and negativity coming from all directions, especially right now – social media, local news, national news, emails, divisive people, etc. In this age of technology and 24-hour news, it seems more and more difficult to weed out the negative and focus on what matters. But this is what God tells us to do and what I would like for us, as a club, to focus on this year.

 

Our nation is sharply divided. This division has trickled into our state, cities and local communities. It has taken hold of our local governments, divided us along racial and ethnic lines and, sadly, seeps into our schools affecting our children. In a diverse county like Fort Bend, the divisiveness can seem impossible to overcome.

 

I believe we can do better at uniting our diverse community and helping all feel welcome. I believe we can change the negative narrative through action. The ladies of this club have been servant leaders our entire lives. Our actions speak louder than negative words. Now, more than ever, our communities need to see what it really means to be a Republican woman. It is not the false or empty words of a politician or pundit standing behind a TV camera, lectern or bank of microphones saying who or what they think we are. We must speak loudly for ourselves. We must show our communities who we are. We must remind them of all we have stood for and done. We must take this opportunity in 2021 to show them our true hearts.

 

Our values shine brightly in our ideology – life, liberty, personal freedom, financial responsibility, service to those less fortunate. Let’s not be discouraged this year but take captive our negative thoughts. Let’s work harder to show our communities who we are and what we stand for. This is how we will demolish the arguments and destroy the pretensions waged against us. I look forward to working alongside each of you in 2021 as we demonstrate who we are as Republican women!

Legislation Watch!

Eliminating the Electoral College

Texas House Bill 1425 and Texas Senate Bill 130

 

I hope this email finds you in better conditions than many of us had to endure last week. We certainly experienced a once in a generation (or 2? or 3?) event, but as Texans do, we persevered. While many faced challenges like no electricity, no water/busted water pipes, and running low on essential items, it has been nice to hear so many stories of our communities coming together to help those in need! Please continue to reach out to your neighbors. We Texans are better than anyone in the country about pulling together.

 

I apologize that the call last week was canceled, but I am sure you understand. Our conversation with David Bossie has been postponed until March 12th. As a reminder we will be discussing the innocuously named For the People Act which is actually a radical attempt by Democrats to weaken election integrity and take away our First Amendment rights. For more information on H.R. 1, see the Heritage Factsheet below.

 

This week, however, we have a lot to talk about! Our main focus will be two new bills, Texas House Bill 1425 and Texas Senate Bill 130 which are tandem efforts to eliminate the Electoral College. These constitutionally questionable initiatives are a progressive attempt to give more power to liberal population centers on the east and west coast to elect our presidents. All of the meeting details and the link to register are at the bottom of this email. If you have missed any of my meetings you can always find more information on my website!

 

And finally, in case you missed it, Fox News shared the announcement of the newly formed RNC Election Integrity Committee, which is dedicated to restoring election transparency and ensuring voters have confidence in future election processes. Congratulations to the committee Chair Joe Gruters (State Chairman of Florida), and to the committee Co-Chair Ashley MacLeay (National Committeewoman of District of Columbia). More details about this announcement are shared below.

 

I hope everyone has a fabulous week and I look forward to seeing you this Friday!

Republican Women Reaching Out a Helping Hand…..

 

Please note that we intend to highlight a local charity at each meeting.  

For February, we will are highlighting Alliance Defending Freedom. 

In 1993, 35 Christian leaders came together to build a ministry that would defend your religious freedom—before it was too late.

These founders knew that it would take an alliance to keep the doors open for the Gospel in the United States.

Like the Body of Christ, the alliance is one body made up of many parts. Attorneys play different roles than pastors. Business leaders play different roles than legislators. Each person must play his or her particular role, under one shared vision, to ensure that religious freedom thrives.

For more than 25 years, ADF has been advocating for religious liberty, the sanctity of human life, freedom of speech, and marriage and family.

 

Learn more about and donate to the Alliance Defending Freedom.
