Dan Patrick is trying to kill HB 63. He needs to hear from you TODAY!
Lt. Governor Dan Patrick took to Twitter recently, declaring that Rep. Moody’s HB 63, which passed with a super majority in the House, is “dead upon arrival” in the Senate due to lack of support. We aren’t giving up! Let’s show him how much support the bill really has!
It is important that you let your senator know you support marijuana penalty reduction, but first, reach out to the Lt. Governor’s office on this matter.
Email Lt. Governor Dan Patrick and ask him to reconsider his position! -->
Then call all the Lt. Governor’s office now! The office phone number is (512) 463-0001. Here's what to say when you call:
“Hello, my name is ___. It has come to my attention that the Lieutenant Governor is standing in the way of important legislation, HB 63. This is a very important policy to me, which I believe should be instituted. Marijuana penalty reduction was supported by more than 80% of the Texas GOP when they voted to include the subject in their party platform. I am requesting that the Lieutenant Governor reconsider his position and allow for a hearing in the Senate on this bipartisan proposal.”Thank you for supporting this important legislation!
