On the eve on Sine Die, Lieutenant Dan allowed Senator Menéndez to filibuster the municipal annexation bill, SB715. This bill would force a vote on whether areas could be annexed or not. The Kingwood Tea Party fought long and hard for this bill. They should because Houston has not been kind to Kingwood.
The witnesses supporting the annexation bill included homeowners from around the state as well as the Texas and Southwestern Cattle Raisers Association, Texas Farm Bureau, and the Texas Public Policy Foundation. The anti-SB 715 crowd consisted of city lobbyists.
Governor Abbott, we saw what Lt. Dan did here, the Kingwood Tea Party could sure use your help, please!
Let Governor Abbott know that you want the annexation issue covered in the call for the special session by contacting
