Last week, Chairman James Dickey reached out to Lt. Governor Patrick and Speaker Straus to let them know the Republican Party of Texas appreciates the legislature passing 3 legislative priority items and to request that the remaining items to be studied as interim charges. The five remaining priorities include Constitutional Carry, Abolition of Abortion, Replacement of Property Tax with an alternative other than an income tax, Comprehensive School Choice using tax exemptions or credits, Protection of Religious Liberty. Besides these, we would certainly welcome any additional items of study related to our shared principles or individual planks in our platform.

Copies of those letters are below.
