HB 789 scheduled for House Vote on Wednesday
The controversial muni network ban was stripped from HB 789 in committee. The bill sponsor has indicated the ban will return. We are anticipating it will be offered as an amendment.
The Texas House is scheduled to vote on HB 789 on Wednesday, March 23. It is critical that you contact your representative and ask them to oppose re-inserting the ban.
