Re: Update: Support HB972 - debate tomorrow (5/14)

I was puzzled to see that my senator, Whitmire, who sounded so skeptical of the anti-campus carry speakers in committee, still voted against HB972 in his committee. I've called his office to ask his to support it on the floor of the Senate.

I wonder if he knew there were enough R's to pass the bill out of committee, so voted against it to keep his 'D' in good standing?

Editted to add... and the second opposition witness (the Baylor math prof).
that's great news! Wish I could listen in. Please do post however much running commentary you can, I'd love to be able to follow along.

Re: Support HB972 - not a dud!

I could see A&M as a university which might possibly *not* opt out...
