Attention Liberty Loving Texans! YOUR Voice Needed to Push the Texas Liberty Preservation Act to the House Floor for Debate!

Texas House Bill (HB) 149, the Texas Liberty Preservation Act, was voted out of the Federalism and Fiscal Responsibility Committee on April 24, 2013, and was forwarded on to the Calendars Committee. As such, it is now at the mercy of a Committee whose responsibility it is to bring HB 149 to the House floor for debate and passage.  If the Calendars Committee does not schedule HB 149 for debate soon, the legislative session will expire (May 27, 2013) without House members having a chance to debate and vote on this key sovereignty centered legislation and the Texas Liberty Preservation Act will die in Calendars Committee!
Why is this important?  “This bill (HB 149) is designed to stop “indefinite detention” (an undefined term) by nullifying two sections of the National Defense Authorization Act (NDAA) for Fiscal Year 2012. Under NDAA of 2012, the federal government claims the right to detain anyone identified as a “covered person” (another term yet to be defined) that it suspects of being involved in “terrorist activities” (yet another term undefined). Sections 1021 and 1022 of the NDAA offer only vague definitions for nearly all of its most important provisions.”
Texas HB 149, the Texas Liberty Preservation Act, imposes criminal penalties of one year in prison and up to a $10,000 fine for any federal agent who would attempt  to carry out such “indefinite detention” (within the state of Texas).” –Garry Reed,  HB 149 Text
