          “For Texans to flourish, they will need comprehensive conservative reform that empowers families, defends local liberty, and promotes limited government. For that reason, we are ecstatic about the prospects for the upcoming special session.  Every day, people all across Texas tell us that they are ready for bold policies that reflect their own principles.
