Press Release: Texas Supreme Court Once Again Denies GOP Attempts to Remove Libertarians from Ballot

San Antonio, TX, August, 26th – After failing to remove Libertarians from the 2020 ballot, the Texas Supreme Court delivered more bad news for the Texas GOP, who once again attempted to limit voter choice and obstruct elections in 2022.

On August 8th, Republican candidates filed a Writ of Mandamus with the Texas Supreme Court to remove 23 Libertarian candidates who would appear on ballots this Fall, claiming they did not meet eligibility requirements.  

The eligibility requirements in question are based on HB 2504, which was passed in 2019, requiring candidates nominated in convention (Libertarians and Greens) to pay filing fees.  While this law may not seem offensive on its face, it becomes quite insidious once understood that these filing fees go to offset the costs of the Primary Parties only. 

This law forces Libertarians and Greens to effectively subsidize Republicans and Democrats, while at the same time representing a financial barrier to possible political challengers.

Stephanie Berlin, Libertarian for Texas House District 122 and plaintiff in the ongoing legal battle, is one Candidate that many Bexar County Voters would have lost as a choice on their ballot. 

Stephanie notes, “This is a win for voters everywhere to ensure all politicians have to work to earn your vote.   Without competition, egregious monopolies form to the extreme detriment of the public.   Hopefully, both the Republicans and the Democrats will learn to embrace both diversity of thought and competition”.

LPTexas continues to fight the underlying unconstitutional filing fee law in Federal Court (Bilyeu v. Scott).  The Federal case is ongoing and we need your help to fund its litigation. See for more information.  

“The Supreme Court got it right again. Voters will now have more opportunities to vote for small-government Libertarians instead of big-government Republicans.”

Arthur DiBianca, State Senate, District 21 Candidate

“The court made the correct decision. This was nothing more than a blatant attempt to remove the only consistently pro-freedom party from the ballot. Voters are tired of milquetoast defenders of freedom and liberty. The Libertarian Party is proud to offer this choice to voters in November.” 

Edgar Coyle, Bexar County Judge Candidate

HB1535 – Texas Therapeutic Use Update

Today HB1535 was referred to the Senate State Affairs Committee!

HB1535 would expand the Texas Therapeutic Use Program (TCUP) to people suffering from chronic pain and PTSD and would raise the THC cap from 0.5% (hemp is therapeutically indistinguishable at 0.3%) to a still-low but potentially therapeutic 5%. This would FINALLY make TCUP a genuine medical cannabis access program! Text of the engrossed bill below for reference:…/billtext/pdf/HB01535E.pdf

The following members of the Senate State Affairs Committee want to hear from you on HB1535. Please email or call the following Senators:
