Hey guys - I couldn't find another thread about it so I'm starting this one.

TX congress is in session now!!
What you can do if you want to help:

You can sign the petition here http://www.petitiononline.com/TXCotFd/petition.html I don't think you have to be a TX resident to sign the petition. There are only 2720 sigs right now thumbsdown.gif

Facebook page - Anyone can "like" here - http://www.facebook.com/pages/Texas-Bakers-Bill/292920830821

Here's the website: http://www.texascottagefoodlaw.com/

If you live in Texas you can contact your representatives. If you're not sure who they are and how to contact click here http://www.fyi.legis.state.tx.us/

If you're not sure how to compose your own note or letter here's a list of things to include http://www.texascottagefoodlaw.com/writing.htm Also you can just call them.

The only way to get it to the floor is lots of support!

Thanks for doing this! I expect that the bill will be filed quite soon, I am working closely with the Representative's office that is preparing it.

A few other notes:
I made a PDF flyer about the bill. Just email me at [email protected] and I will send it to you so you can print it out to pass out to your friends, family, and neighbors!

Please go to the link below, find out who represents you, and email that information to me! I am keeping a comprehensive list of the supporters we have in each district so we are ready to hit the ground running! I also need one volunteer in each district to stick to their Rep and Senator like glue through this whole process. Are you that person?

Thanks, Cakemom2345! icon_smile.gif

I thought you had to be a Texas resident to sign the petition. Can you check into it before non-residents sign?

I would prefer it if only Texas residents signed; however, this is not a legally binding petition, and to be honest, its usefulness has mostly passed. I used it as a way to demonstrate interest to Senator Ogden's staff two years ago. We have proved our level of interest, and then some. The most important thing to do now is for Texans to get involved and write and call their legislators.
