Change of Plans

Campus Carry Advocates:

Please ignore our previous message. Do not bother calling members of the House Calendars Committee about SB 905. The House Appropriations Committee nixed any chance of SB 905 being used as a vehicle for campus carry, by recommending that the bill be sent to the Local and Consent Committee (ensuring that no amendments are possible).

Instead, we ask that you please call AND fax the office of Governor Rick Perry and ask that he add campus carry to the list of higher education issues to be included in the impending special session.

Office of the Governor Rick Perry
PHONE: (800) 252-9600
FAX: (512) 463-1849 (Use to send a free fax from your web browser)

Call early, and call often. If you’re up for it, make one call and send one fax every day for the next two weeks. Don’t let up. Remind the governor that this issue has broad support among both the legislators and the people of Texas. Remind him that campus carry has never been voted down by any faction of the Texas Legislature and that it has passed the Texas Senate twice.

Thanks for your continued support of this important issue. Remember, the fight isn’t over!

    I just want to point out that it was actually the House Criminal Jurisprudence Committee that sent the bill to the Local and Consent Committee, not the House Appropriations Committee.

    When I sent this message, I was running on too little sleep and had been dealing with too many committees, and I named the wrong one.

    I sent out a follow-up message correcting my mistake, but since the follow-up message isn’t posted here, I felt I should post this correction.
