Legislative Update

Brief update: HB 1987, that limits party officers from running for office, passed out of the Elections Committee, so the fight moves on to the following steps:

A couple other bills we oppose are in the same situation: HB 1812 and SB 2093 (almost identical) will require our candidates to pay filing fees even though the old parties supposedly pay such fees to fund their Primary elections, which we do not use. We encourage you to take the same actions described above to oppose both bills, and use the links provided in this email to stay updated to the status of each.

Thank you for taking action with us!

Also, LPTexas has opened a Legislative Action Fund! Every dollar raised will go straight to maintaining an active, full-time, Libertarian presence at the Capitol. Send questions to the LPTexas Development Dept.: Development@LPTexas.org
