Demand Dems Return To WorkAugust 28, 2021
First, I want to thank you for recently signing the petition demanding that the Texas House Democrats return to work. I share your frustration, and appreciate you speaking out and making your opinion known.
I’m happy to report that weeks after the Democrats fled the state, we finally secured a quorum this week.
On Friday afternoon, the Texas House passed SB 1, the common sense election integrity bill that caused the Democrats to walk off the job. The vote was 80-41. At least 26 members were still absent, refusing to return to vote on behalf of their constituents.
This bill now goes to the Texas Senate for approval. In the meantime, those of us who have been here all along will continue to lead the way, fighting for border security, property tax relief, the unborn and defenseless, and much more.
I will continue to keep you informed about the progress we make in the special session.
Thank you for allowing me to serve as your State Representative in Austin. It is an honor and privilege.
