The Legislative Session Is Over,
And The Primary Is Almost Here!
Our legislators have completed one of the more conservative sessions in recent history. Governor Abbott has said he doesn’t plan to call a Special Session of the legislature. The most exciting wins for most folks are in the area of reduced property taxes (pending a Texas Constitutional referendum in the Fall), open carry, reduced franchise tax and a budget that stayed below the rate of growth and inflation in our Great State! While no one is ever fully satisfied with the results of any legislative session, this one was certainly one of the better regarding satisfying many people.
Now we turn our attention to the upcoming Republican Primary and how best to be prepared for it. With a crowded field of presidential candidates, a contested state senatorial race, not to mention a constitutional amendment all on the ballot, a higher than normal turnout is expected! We need YOU to help become involved in the Smith County Republican Party now so you can help others and/or your favorite candidates.
We will be getting back to normal in our meetings and efforts to rein in our government. I urge you to find out what Republic an club best meets your needs and concerns and to get involved!
