Rep. Dale Requests 2nd Special Session, UPDATED

UPDATE:  Special session begins July 1, 2013 at 2 P.M.  Shrill "Occupy" protesters like those who tried to stop reforms in Wisconsin successfully thwarted the business of the first special session.  The truth is that Texans strongly support the pro-life measures provided by Senate Bill 5.  Many of the pro-abortion protesters are pretty crass, but if you can take it, please consider showing up in person for the legislative proceedings in Austin this week.  If not, please pray, and call your Texas representative or senator to express support.  (Who Represents Me?)

 A letter from State Representative Tony Dale to the Governor regarding the pro-abortion activists' obstruction of senate proceedings last night.  In case you missed it, a screaming mob prevented the senate from conducting special session business prior to the midnight deadline.

Dear Governor Perry,

Thank you for your leadership and all that you have done help make Texas the best state in the nation.  Unfortunately last night, due to the shameful acts of many people, mob ruleprevented our Texas Senate from functioning properly.  This is not Texas and this must not stand.  

I bear no ill will toward those Senators who appropriately used the rules to advance their cause; however we cannot tolerate an offensive lack of respect for our institutions and traditions.  I believe we have a moral obligation to preserve the rights of those elected to represent the people rather than bowing to bullying from those who through willful intimidation and disruption violate the rules of the Texas Legislature.

I respectfully ask you to immediately call a second special session to complete the measures that were killed as a result of last night's disruptions.  Those items include funding mechanisms for transportation, improving the standards for facilities that perform abortions and establishing sentencing guidelines for seventeen year olds that commit capital murder.    

Thank you for your consideration.


Tony Dale
State Representative
House District 136
