Annexation without representation—this is the unfortunate reality some Texans face as big city governments annex rural property owners to alleviate some of their own mounting debt and pension problems.

This growing and looming threat to property rights was the topic of conversation earlier this month at the Texas Public Policy Foundation’s 14th annual Policy Orientation Panel: “No Voice, No Vote: Force Annexation in Texas”, wherein Texas State Senator Donna Campbell, Texas House Representative Dan Huberty, and former U.S. Senate and House Member Phil Gram all joined in to discuss this encroachment on liberty!

Watch below to see this exciting discussion on forced annexation and the threat it poses to liberty at the local level.
