I had the same thought. I've got mine in an envelope with a stamp on it, ready to go out in tomorrow's mail.

He's had a bit of a bad time of things, I'm sure he'll appreciate a few kind words of encouragement.

Great idea - I'm definitely doing the same thing. (It's sort of a shame we so often only think to write/call our representatives when we're mad at them!)

S Record vote 05/20/2011
Bill: SB 354 Legislative Session: 82(R)

A vote was taken on this legislation, but the vote information is currently unavailable for display.

Once the journal for this day is available, the vote link will reference the official vote information in the journal.



Found the list of nays to suspend the rules: Davis, Ellis, Gallegos, Hinojosa, Lucio, Rodriguez, Uresti, Van de Putte, Watson, West, Zaffirini. Carona absent. No big surprises there...

There's also a nifty CHL badge, sash, coat, and tiara combo set you can be entered in the drawing for. Lots of competition for that one, though.

Here's the record vote on Campus Safety. (aka Civil Rights on Campus)

Yeas: Birdwell, Deuell, Duncan, Eltife, Estes, Fraser, Harris, Hegar, Huffman, Jackson, Nelson, Nichols, Ogden, Patrick, Seliger, Shapiro, Wentworth, Whitmire, Williams.
Nays: Davis, Ellis, Gallegos, Hinojosa, Lucio, Rodriguez, Uresti, Van de Putte, Watson, West, Zaffirini.
Absent-excused: Carona.

As a student, I believe that's how gun owners should vote in 2012. If they voted Nay on self defense, vote Nay on them.
I'm too old for this...

Amen to that... Sure wish I lived in Ogden's district so I could vote him out.

I see that Ogden finally switched his vote to "Aye" now that it no longer matters. I imagine he's been getting a significant amount of heat from his district about his nay votes earlier on.
