Pick up the phone, or open your email account and contact your representative on these issues. Religious or not, it’s completely against our constitution to have our government impose on religious liberties. If you enjoy your freedom, you should support this bill!
We need help to get religious liberty and protection of marriage bills across the finish line to a vote in the Texas House and Senate. Not much time remains. The Texas Legislature will only be in session for 3 more weeks.
PLEASE act now! Please send an e-mail to each of the Calendars Committee members on these four bills with a simple message as outlined. If you are unable to e-mail each of the members, please at least e-mail or call the Chair, Todd Hunter. Also, there is one final, but extremely important action e-mail needed on SB 1155. Please notify as many people as you know who would help us.

HB 562 by Rep. Jeff Leach, “American Law for American Courts.” This bill says that if an issue comes before a court on the dissolution of marriage or custody of a child and involved is a contract or provision from a foreign government, and this would violate American law according to our Constitution, the Judge must rule in favor of American law.
