Dear Texas NRA Member:
Last week, Rep. Giovanni Capriglione (R-Southlake), and Sen. Charles Schwertner (R-Georgetown), filed House Bill 2558, and Senate Bill 19, NRA-backed bills that discourage banks, payment processors, insurers, and other financial services providers from discriminating against members of the firearm and ammunition industries. The legislation prohibits businesses that engage in this practice from contracting with governmental entities in the Lone Star State. Taxpayer dollars should not be used to benefit the bottom-line of corporations that are actively working to erode the Second Amendment rights of law-abiding Texans.
We appreciate Lt. Governor Dan Patrick prioritizing this issue by assigning it a low bill number in the Senate. We thank Sen. Schwertner and Rep. Capriglione for introducing this critical legislation to protect the lawful firearms industry.
Please contact your state representative and urge them to co-author HB 2558.
Please contact your state senator and urge them to co-sponsor SB 19.
