Call to Veto SB 5

Free Press has just issued an action alert for all concerned Texans to call Governor Perry and ask him to veto the telecom bill. While the harmful muni wireless provisions have been stripped, what remains is still very bad for Texans and our communities.

If you are concerned about the future of broadband communications in Texas, please take a moment to view the action alert. It will tell you everything you need to place a quick phone call to register your opposition.

As far as the now concluding special session, here is a choice quote that seems to sum it all up:

Lobbyists are driving the train rather than having a philosophically driven, policy-driven plan.

– former Texas GOP Chairman Tom Pauken.
