I am having the feeling, Mamas, that the 84th Legislature of the great State of Texas is going to involve a whole lot of Lone Star Ma Mama Action Alerts. We need to be prepared to call our representatives and weigh in on the legislation that affects our children.
If you do not know who your state representatives are or how to contact them, one thing I must say is that it is time to step it up as a citizen. We have responsibilities as well as rights in a democracy and one of those responsibilities is staying informed, so please get on it, Mamas.
A quick way to find your representatives is to go to http://www.fyi.legis.state.tx.us/Home.aspx and type in your address, leaving the drop-down menu below on "All Districts". The contact information for your various representatives will then come up. Let's stay on them, Mamas, and make sure Texas takes care of its kids.
