POTENTIAL BEER-TO-GO VOTE THIS THURSDAY!
Even with bipartisan support and 14,500+ petition signatures, we’re three-quarters of the way through the Texas Legislative Session and HB 672, the Bipartisan Beer-To-Go bill, hasn’t even received a committee hearing.
Without a fair shake in committee, our shot to fix Texas beer laws comes by supporting Beer-To-Go as an amendment to the TABC Sunset Bill which will be heard on the House floor this Thursday, April 25.
We need to make our voices heard between now and the vote with our biggest, loudest push yet. Please help the fight by completing the three steps below. We know YOU support Beer-To-Go, but this might be our last shot to make sure YOUR State Rep knows that too before the vote!
STEP # 1: CALL YOUR STATE REP
Whether you’ve already called your State Rep or this will be your first time, this is the most critical time to call and the single most important thing you can do to help pass the Beer-To-Go amendment in the House! Your Representative needs to hear from you.
Find your State Representative’s name and phone number HERE.
“Hello, my name is ___________. I am a constituent and I’m calling to ask Representative ___________ to support a Beer-To-Go amendment on the TABC Sunset Bill this Thursday. Beer-To-Go is legal from breweries in ALL 49 other states and was included in both the 2018 Texas Republican and Democratic party platforms.
This is a Bipartisan issue with broad consumer support. Can I count on Representative __________ to vote YES on a Beer-To-Go amendment on the Sunset bill?
STEP # 2: LIGHT UP #TXLEGE TWITTER
Help us spread the word on Twitter! Hit the button below to send a tweet telling #TXlege that you support the #BeerToGo amendment. We’ve drafted up a tweet to make it really easy for you, but feel free to customize it and tag your state representative.
Remember to keep it respectful, we need these lawmakers’ votes!
STEP # 3: PACK THE HOUSE AT THE CAPITOL THURSDAY
The Texas House convenes at 10 am on Thursday. The Sunset bill isn’t the only matter up for a vote that day, so there’s no way to know exactly when it will take place, but we’ve gotta show up and stick it out. If you’re available to come to the State Capitol in Austin, please help us show the legislature that this is an issue Texans really care about by packing the gallery above the House floor.
We will have free Beer-To-Go T-shirts and buttons for those who join.
The House Gallery is on the third floor of the Texas State Capitol, Room # 3W.2.
