CTA - HB 149 - February 6, 2013

Requesting Immediate Action, We need letters/phone Calls. The Texas Motorcycle Rights Association is requesting a “Call to Action” for all Texas motorcycle rights groups and bikers in the Lone Star state. We need phone calls immediately involving HB149 Texas Liberty Preservation Act which Nullifies Sections 1021 and 1022 of the National Defense Authorization Act.

The bill includes criminal penalties for federal agents who attempt to carry out such “indefinite detentions” within the state of Texas – 1 year in prison and up to $10,000 fine.Texas House Bill 149 (HB149), The Texas Liberty Preservation Act (Larson; HD-122), was placed into the Federalism and Fiscal Responsibility Committee on 2-6-2013.

Please contact by e-mail and or send letters and phone calls to each committee member for the Federalism and Fiscal Responsibility Committee and express your support for HB 149.  We urge you to CALL and write a letter, or send the letter by EMAIL.

We have HB 149 we are trying to get pushed through committee so that the House can vote on it. This bill would nullify Federal portions of the NDAA act that says US citizens can be indefinately detained without due process. Please view the attached sample letter and modify it with the appropriate addresses and names, print it out and sign it in Blue Ink. Send one to each of the five committee members, and don’t forget to send an e-copy to your regional Unit Commander. The Call to Action below gives several options of contact, but it is my opinion that we should wake them up early and do what we do best with Hard Copy letters and Faxes signed in blue ink.

In Re:  Support for HB149 Texas Liberty Preservation Act/Nullification of Sections 1021 and 1022 of the National Defense Authorization Act.

Dear Representative:

I respectfully urge you to support HB149 which Nullifies Sections 1021 and 1022 of the National Defense Authorization Act.   These  changes by our federal government are a slap in the face to civil liberty, an affront to our Bill of Rights and due process, and just another example of Washington forcing unconstitutional authority allowing the President to carry out police state actions under the label of “keeping us safe.”

In defense of our fundamental constitutional rights, I urge you to stand up for the Constitution and support HB149 with a “ Yes” vote.   This bill makes section 1021 1nd 1022 illegal in the state of Texas and includes criminal penalties for federal agents who attempt to carry out such “indefinite detentions” within the state of Texas – 1 year in prison and up to $10,000 fine.

Thank you for your support in this matter.
