"Members of CorridorWatch and our numerous friends and allies in the fight have won a tremendous victory for the state of Texas and its citizens."
HB1892 passed last week in the Senate 27 to 4 and today in the House by a vote of 139 to 1. Those margins don't invite a veto, but Governor Perry is poised with pen in hand. He has until Monday, May 14th to send the bill back with his veto and objections. If he doesn't act by that date the bill will automatically become law.
Should there be a veto we will need to go back to work and ensure that both the House and Senate reach 2/3rds on a reconsideration vote.
Job well done.
Thank you everyone.
Members of CorridorWatch and our numerous friends and allies in the fight have won a tremendous victory for the state of Texas and its citizens.
You should know that nearly everyone believed that what you have accomplished today was impossible. Yes, it was hard. And yes, there's still a lot to do. But what we have done together this session will provide the time and encouragement to take our fight to the next level.
CorridorWatch especially applauds the Senators and Representatives who listened to our concerns and led the charge inside the Capitol. Without their efforts we would have been lost.
