Indefinite detention - NDAA Nullification in Texas

Please take the following actions to help it pass!
Texas House Bill 149, The Liberty Preservation Act to nullify NDAA “indefinite detention,” is one of the strongest bills in the country in response to that unconstitutional federal act.
It states, in part: “Sections 1021 and 1022 of the National Defense Authorization Act for Fiscal Year 2012 violate portions of federal law, the United States Constitution, and the Texas Constitution and, as such, are invalid and illegal in this state.”
The bill has been assigned to committee but will need a hearing and vote soon to move forward.  Please take the following steps to help push things along.
Action Items for HB 149:
1. Contact  the committee chair of Federalism and Fiscal Responsibility  Call and politely let Representative Creighton know that you’d like to see HB149 get a hearing and YES vote very soon.
Brandon Creighton (512) 463-0726
