Call Gov Perry's office NOW!!!

From

BikeTexas URGENT!!!!!!!!!



Dear Fellow Texas Cyclists,



Every cyclist in Texas must call Governor Perry today and insist that he allow SB 488 to pass!



The

governor mistakenly thinks that the bill puts all of the responsibility on the

motorist. There might be time to save the bill if you hurry and make the

calls.



This is the most important call we have ever asked you to make.

Our lives depend on it.



BikeTexas was notified at 12:30 pm CST that

Governor Perry plans to veto the Safe Passing Bill. This veto can happen within

the next couple of hours TODAY. We need every cyclist in Texas to call NOW and

tell the Governor to pass SB 488. More than 1000 vulnerable road users in Texas

die every year. This bill will save lives!



You must give the bill

number. (SB488)



CALL both phone NUMBERS
(512)463-4375
(512)

463-2000 Governor's main switchboard until 5pm



Let's Light Up The

Grassroots.
CALL NOW!!



Supporting Organizations

include:



American Automobile Association (AAA)
American Association of

Retired Persons (AARP)
Texas Motorcycle Rights Association (TMRA)
12

Senator and Representative Co-Authors



Bill

Sincerely,
Robin

Stallings
Executive Director

Perry is a ******! First he asks outdoorsmen (fisherman/hunters) If they would agree to raised license fees he would use that money to keep state parks open. With an outstanding yes they agreed. Then Perry used that extra money toward the state deficit and still closed some state parks. I'm a conservative and vote that way, but this will be the second time I WILL NOT VOTE FOR HIM. Please get this wanker out of office.
