Texas House Bill 149, The Liberty Preservation Act to nullify NDAA “indefinite detention,” is one of the strongest bills in the country in response to that unconstitutional federal act.  The bill has been passed out of the Federalism committee.  And on Tuesday, the Calendars committee moved it to the House floor just before this year’s legislative deadline.

HB149 is going to need a lot of support – primarily through phone calls to state representatives – to pass out of the State House.  Since the bill will be voted on in the house on Thursday, May 9th, your calls are needed right NOW in support.  Emails will not have the impact – so make sure you CALL.

And if you get to this after business hours, call in the evening and leave a message.  When legislators get to the house floor on Thursday, they need to know that you want them to vote YES on HB149.

Action Items for HB 149:

1.  Contact your state representative.  Strongly, but respectfully, urge him or her to vote YES on HB149.

2.  Share this information widely.  Send this notice out to everyone you know by email.  Share it with your group email lists, post on facebook, share on twitter – and everywhere else possible.

3. Encourage your local community to take action as well.  Present model legislation to your city county, your town council, or your county commissioners.  Various local governments around the country are already passing similar resolutions and ordinances.  Local legislative action present a great way to strengthen a statewide campaign against NDAA indefinite detention and to preserve the second amendment.
