All the Texas Right to Life priority bills for the 82nd Legislative Session are filed, and the legislative team is now recruiting coauthors!
Coauthoring a bill, an important part of the legislative process, allows elected officials to attach their name to a bill and publicly express their support before the bill has even come up for debate or a vote. Since over 3,000 bills were filed, co- authorship of Texas Right to Life’s priority bills signals that our measures to restore the sanctity of innocent human life are a top priority for our Pro Life Representatives.
Since receiving bill numbers for all of our legislation, our legislative team has been diligently passing out reference cards to the members of the House of Representatives that list our bill numbers and authors, requesting them to coauthor. For a list of TRTL’s priority legislation click here
We are very grateful for the members who have coauthored many of our bills. Specifically, we want to recognize our “All-Stars.” If a member has signed on to our six priority bills they receive a Gold Star. If a member signed on to 4 or 5 of our priorities, they receive a Silver Star.
Gold (All 6 bills)
Charles “Doc” Anderson
Silver (4-5 bills)
