Just in time for SXSW: Travis GOP calls on Legislature to standardize ridesharing rules

Posted on Feb 22, 2017 in Blog with comments
The Republican platform is about preserving American freedoms, limiting the expanse of government power, promoting individual freedom and strengthening the economy.
 
That's why the Texas Legislature should step in to eliminate attempts by local governments to control our individual freedoms and economic liberties.

The Travis County Republican Party is in support of SB 176, regulating Transportation Network Companies at the state level, and SB113, removing local city regulation from certain for-hire passenger transportation.

Ask before annexing!

The Travis County Republican Party calls upon the 85 th Legislature of Texas to pass, and the Governor to sign, a bill providing that the registered voters who reside in the area proposed for annexation must vote in favor of annexation before a municipality can annex that area ...

... and providing that if the registered voters in the area vote against annexation, the municipality that proposed to annex that area may not annex any part of that area for five years.

Statement by Chairman James Dickey on Rep. Dawnna Dukes

Posted on Jan 7, 2017 in Blog with comments

Statement by Travis GOP Chairman James Dickey on Rep. Dawnna Dukes (D-Austin):

AUSTIN – Travis County GOP chairman James Dickey released the following statement today in response to an Austin American-Statesman report that State Rep. Dawnna Dukes (D-Austin), who is currently under criminal investigation, will break the promise she made to the voters of HD-46, and will instead remain in the Texas House:

“Dawnna Dukes is under a very serious criminal investigation. When she appeared mere days away from being indicted, she announced she would ‘resign’ on the first day of the new legislative session, thereby increasing her pension by thousands of dollars each year. Now, with a new Democratic District Attorney in office (Margaret Moore), State Rep. Dukes appears to be violating the promise she made to the voters of HD-46 that she would resign. This raises very serious questions. Was a corrupt deal cut with the District Attorney? Is the District Attorney dropping the criminal investigation, and if so, why? Why did State Rep. Dukes blatantly lie to the voters? Will honest and ethical Travis County Democrats stand by this corrupt Democrat and allow her to break her promise to the voters?”
