In an effort to support Property Tax Reform and passage of Constitutional Carry, the Randall County Repulican Party Executive Committee passed a resolution on 3.7.19 calling on our representatives in the Texas legislature to pass these measures. The resolution also condemns efforts of local elected officials to lobby against these measures.
Legislative Priority Resolution
Whereas, the 2019 legislative session legislative priorities adopted by the Republican Party of Texas have seemingly stalled or are actively being promoted against.
Whereas, Plank #162 of the Republican Party of Texas Platform calls for a 2.5% rollback rate, and local municipal leadership is actively lobbying in Austin against the Legislative Priority.
Whereas, Plank #70 of the Republican Party of Texas Platform calls for the passage of Constitutional Carry.
Whereas, Plank #217 of the Republican Party of Texas Platform calls for the prohibition of Tax Funded Lobbying.
Whereas, HB2 and SB2, HB357, and HJR86 as well as other bills are not being treated like critical and important issues in Austin by the legislature.
Therefore be it resolved, that the Randall County Republican Party calls upon our representatives in Austin to take all necessary actions to support and advance the priorities, including but not limited to co-authoring. Further, the Party considers supporting the priorities critical to the support of the core principles of the Party.
Therefore be it resolved, that a copy of this resolution be certified by the county chair, posted on the Party website, sent to all Precinct Chairs, to the Party's email lists, local news media, and our legislative representatives within 5 days of passage.
