LEGISLATIVE PRIORITIES

The 87th Texas Legislature is in Regular Session through May 31, 2021. Our Club supports the Texas GOP Legislative priorities listed below.  Several Members are working with the Texas GOP and our Legislators to pass bills favorable to these priorities.  Contact Ben Brown at jbenbrownpe@msn.com for more information.

  • Election Integrity: Require citizenship verification of each voter, and felony penalties for Election Code violations that threaten election integrity.

 

  • Religious Freedom: Restore the rights of individuals, organizations, and businesses, to exercise their sincerely held religious beliefs by prohibiting local ordinances, state laws, or executive orders that violate those rights.

 

  • Children and Gender Modification: Abolish the following practices for minors: intervention to prevent natural progression of puberty; administration of opposite sex hormones; and performance of any type of gender reassignment surgery.

  • Abolition of Abortion: Abolish abortion by ensuring the right to life and equal protection of the laws to all preborn children from the moment of fertilization.

  • Constitutional Carry: Restore legal Texas firearms owners’ rights to carry them openly or concealed without a permit, while maintaining the option of a permit for reciprocity purposes.

 

  • Monument Protection: All monuments or markers in our state shall be protected by law from being removed, defaced, destroyed, or otherwise dishonored. In particular, specific protection shall be given to the Alamo Cenotaph which shall not be removed from its current location off the Alamo Battlefield footprint.

 

  • School Choice for All: Empower parents and guardians to choose from public, private, charter, or homeschool options for their children’s education using tax credits or exemptions without government restraint or intrusion.

 

  • Ban Taxpayer-Funded Lobbying: Abolish all forms of taxpayer-funded lobbying.

 

  • Rein-in Executive Power: Curtail the power of the governor to extend the Disaster Act and enable local officials to enact restrictions on individual liberties of Texans. Our citizens -- especially our vulnerable populations of children and seniors -- are suffering due to isolation, and mask and other unscientific mandates. Small businesses are being destroyed from occupancy and other unconstitutional ordinances.
