Re: CALL TO ACTION: Employer Parking Lots SB321

Charles L. Cotton wrote:Everyone needs to call their Senator and as many others as you can and thank them for supporting and voting for SB321, the employer parking lot bill. (It passed the Senate 30-1 [Sen. Rodriquez voted "no"). Here is a link to the Senate http://www.capitol.state.tx.us/Members/ ... ?Chamber=S" onclick="window.open(this.href);return false;

Please do likewise in the House. I realize there are 150 House Members, but please call as many as you can and you don't have to do it all in one day. In fact, it would be better of this occurred over the next 2 or 3 days. Here is the link: http://www.capitol.state.tx.us/Members/ ... ?Chamber=H" onclick="window.open(this.href);return false;

I am asking this not only as a courtesy, so please call even if you haven't responded to any other calls-to-action.

Thanks,
Chas.
Here is a much better phone list for the House - a single PDF file, one page, listing all the names & phone numbers. Easier to blow through the list calling everyone off a single cheat sheet!

Re: CALL TO ACTION: Employer Parking Lots SB321

Frustrating. I know it's charmingly naive, but the universities don't elect senators... *we* elect senators :totap: But apparently what the universities want is more important than we, the people...

Re: CALL TO ACTION: Employer Parking Lots SB321

I just finished calling all 30 senators (phew!) to say 'thank you' for their votes for SB 321. Will tackle the House reps later...

Wound up having a very pleasant 15 minute conversation w. the staffer in Zaffirini's office about campus carry. Since she's the chair of the higher ed committee, there's basically a snowball's chance in hell that she'd vote for SB 354 as a tradeoff for removing the language from SB 5. Just too much united pressure from all the university heads. Plus all the hand-wringing from the Austin college students. But I was impressed with the lady I spoke with - friendly, didn't treat me like a leper for being one of those 'gun people', knowledgeable, etc.

Re: CALL TO ACTION: Employer Parking Lots SB321

I also sent a thank you email to Sen Wentworth after watching the campus carry catfight on the Senate floor. Yea Gods. Whether it passes in 2011 or not, he definitely deserves a thank you for all his efforts.

Re: CALL TO ACTION: Employer Parking Lots SB321

Called both of mine (Sarah Davis and Mario Gallegos). I also mentioned my disappointment that he withdrew his support for campus carry. The staffer said that the Senator 'just couldn't go up against the institutions'. Apparently the Houston public universities beat him over the head about it??

Will work to call the others over the next few days. Long list!!
