The State Affairs committee in the Texas House of Representatives recently held a public hearing on a bill to establish a moratorium on executions in Texas.This is a *major* step forward.
WHAT YOU CAN DOPlease call at least one member of the State Affairs Committee (phone calls to legislative offices should be brief):
- thanking them for holding the hearing
- expressing how important it is to halt executions while so many problems in the Texas criminal justice system remain unresolved
- urging them to support and vote in favor of HB 720.
