Call to Action~ Decentralize the Power from the Texas Speaker of the House

Call to Action: 

Contact your local Texas House Reps to support proposal by Rep. Bill Zedler (R) Arlington to amend the House Rules as follows:

a. No Committee Chairmen could serve on the Calendars Committee. The Calendars Committee basically controls what legislation is brought up for a ‘floor vote;’ and 

b. If a measure has 76 or more co-authors the Calendars Committee must submit it to the House Floor for an up or down vote within 7 to 10 days. By the way a similar provision is in place in the U. S. House of Representatives. It is called a ‘bill of petition.’

Corruption under the existing rules during the last session caused several liberty-minded bills that had broad popular support to never see the ‘light of day.’ Although the Anti-TSA Groping Bill did finally reach the House Floor towards the end of the 82nd General Session, it’s pace, to say the least, was ‘leisurely.’

These House Rules reforms will be voted on sometime between this Thursday, January 10 through Monday, January 14 on the floor of the House. Let’s immediately contact our local Texas House lawmakers and insist that they vote for these changes. This will ‘decentralize’ the powers that currently reside exclusively with the House Speaker and that will ‘serve as a wall’ against future corruption of the legislative process.

  1. How Ironic ~ Speaker Joe Straus on Retribution | Voices Empower Says:

    […] an opportunity for some rule changes in the house which would decentralize power from the Speaker. One of the good guys in the Texas house is a true man of conviction (Rep.
