This month at True Texas Project Randall/Potter County we have a double-header, each bringing an incredible wealth of knowledge from the capitol of Texas. Brandon Waltens is the Managing Editor for Texas Scorecard and will keep us up to date on all of of the goings-on in Austin, whether it’s corrupt establishment politicians, or victories in the legislative session. Rebecca Parma is the Senior Legislative Associate for Texas Right to Life, and will be updating us on the ins-and-outs of the Texas Heartbeat Act, how it affects our state, and what we can do to protect it.
We are also hosting Thomas Warren, of the Amarillo Pioneer, to speak to us about Amarillo’s rising property tax issues.
