Green Source DFW 6/7/19 - Pushback continues for anti-protest bill on gov's desk

greensource push back newsBy Julie Ryan June 7, 2019

It’s public pushback to a shocking legislative turnaround at the Capitol at the end of May.


From the article:

"The 64th Texas Legislature’s efforts to criminalize public protest is all over — but the shouting. And the signing.

As of May 27, House Bill 3557, the “Critical Infrastructure Protection Act 3, appears to be a done deal.

But there was shouting last Saturday in Dealey Plaza in Dallas as about a dozen demonstrators urged Governor Abbott— “Do NOT Sign HB 3557 into LAW!” A rally is planned in Austin June 15.

It’s public pushback to a shocking legislative turnaround at the Capitol at the end of May.

On June 1, Dallas activists shared the same concerns about HB 3557 voiced by thousands of Texans in calls, emails, public testimony and protests at the legislature since the bill’s introduction by Rep. Chris Paddie (R-Sherman) in March."
