CORRECTION: TEXAS HB 4470/SB 499: BASTARD NATION’S LETTER TO THE HOUSE COMMITTEE ON PUBLIC HEALTH–DEFEAT THEM!
I mistakenly posted the BN Action Alert a second time instead of the letter. Here is the correct post. Here is the letter Bastard Nation sent to the Texas House Committee on Public Health regarding HB 4470 and SB 499. We called for instructions to submit written testimony and learned that the legislature will only take in-person testimony. In other words, if an individual or organization wants their testimony on any bill to be on the record they may have to make an 8 hour drive or fly to Austin. And forget about faxing. It clogs up their machines and takes too much time. Please email! (See previous action alert for details) HB 4470 and SB 499 appear to be the handiwork of the so-called adoption reform organization TxCare. (webpage out of date.) So don’t‘ blame it all on the adoption industry. BASTARD NATION: THE ADOPTEE RIGHTS ORGANIZATION P.O.
