“Let’s Take Back Texas Animal Issues”

Texas Humane Legislation Network states on their website that they are the political arm and voice for every animal and animal welfare agency in Texas. 

Texas Humane Legislation Network and HSUS don’t speak for us! 

E-mail Jacque, our Program Director, at jacque15@att.net to register

for Lobby Day and give her the names of your representatives. 

Meet us at 10:00 a.m. to hear a few words from our lobbyists Gib Lewis and James Dark.  Pick up your RPOA button to wear while visiting with legislators.  We can bring food in this room and work through lunch time. 

Each of you are to make your own appointments with your representative and senator. They can be found on the state’s website www.capitol.state.tx.us by entering your address in the Search Box on the lower right side of the screen.   Print it out as it contains the location of their offices at the Capitol or district offices, all contact information, etc.   

Maps of the Capitol Complex are on our website:  www.rpoatexasoutreach.org 

Legislators always like to meet constituents personally in their offices.  If the legislator can’t meet with you himself, his aide will meet with you and convey your comments to the legislator.  Many of you are new to the legislative process, but that doesn’t matter.  We’ll have material in our room for your legislator and suggested dialogue as openers for your brief meeting.  First question for your legislator is:  “Do you own a pet?”  

Don’t forget to pick up  your RPOA identification button!
