The Legislative Study Group Needs the Support of Progressive Texans

You’ll probably see this on lots of blogs so it was a question of do I do this, too and look like someone who is simply adding his voice to the chorus. The flip side, do I not do this because everyone else is, and people point at my blog and say “Not committed?” “Uppity?” “Apathetic?”

Or is it the real reason: each time I make an entry into this blog I want to write about the most important or interesting thing I have encountered recently, and this is it.

A public policy group, called the Legislative Study Group, is getting set for the 80th Legislature. This group is a caucus that generates public policy of benefit to Texans and Texas families.

They are historically active in promoting public policy in areas of “teacher rights and benefits, opposition to school vouchers and opposition to cuts to the Children’s Health Insurance program.

It runs on public donations.

If you think that this is a laudable and worthwhile effort, support their efforts to get accurate information to legislators to help them come to thoughtful informed decisions on key legislation in the upcoming regular session.

Thanks so much for your help! Like you said, we rely on public donations to promote public policy that benefits all Texas families.

Thanks again for all that you do, let me know if there are any questions, or if there's anything we can help out with.

Okay, okay - you talked me into a Christmas gift for all Texas children and Texas teachers, too.

Someone will burn in heckfire for cutting the CHIPS program.
