lege watch & citizen lobby

Want to wake up your legislative representatives?

Pay attention.

The Texas legislature is now in session, and over the next month-and-a-half, six to eight thousand more bills will be filed.

We want to make sure that everyone who is raging and protesting right now pays attention to what’s going on and gets active in lobbying their representatives.

The green party has a legislative watch team that hopes to keep voters informed about what bills are coming up in committees that are for or against the green party platform and 10 key values .

Unfortunately since there’s so many bills in such a short amount of time (the legislature only meets until May), we have to pick and choose what to do.

With your help we could cover more ground and activate more people.

The committee working on this will be following special interest groups who are already watching areas of interest, and working in Coalition with other political parties and organisations, like the League of Independent Voters, on election law changes.. we will be reporting dates of hearings, and Lobby efforts that people can do from home, even if you don’t have much time.
