It is with immense frustration that I write you to tell you that HB 81 was not heard by the deadline of midnight on Thursday, May 11th. Due to deleterious actions of legislators in regards to other bills, the agenda did not advance to our bills position. This is a travesty. However, Chair Moody has promised to continue to work to get it added as amendments to bills as the session continues.
In the next few days, we will have a break down for you on the achievements of each bill and future plans. Once the session fully ends, the cycle will start again and we must be ever ready! Expect more to come. We have been catalyzed into a stronger, smarter force.
We also invite you to join us this Saturday, May 13th at the Texas State Capitol for our 10th Annual Texas Marijuana March, where we will redress our grievances against our government in regard to cannabis laws.
