It has been an exciting start of the 84th Session. I have been working hard with my colleagues from across the state to make sure that we can honor those men and women who bravely risk their lives, so that we may be free.
That is why I am honored to share with you HB 115. This bill will award the Texas Purple Heart to the victims of the tragic Ft. Hood shooting. Since the Federal Government won’t recognize these attacks as terrorist related, we have taken step to show the Nation that “Texans take care of Texans” as the author of HB 155 Representative Tony Dale stated.
