Taxpayer-Funded Lobbying Ban for Cities, Counties Passes Texas Senate | Texas Scorecard 04/18/2021

Taxpayer-Funded Lobbying Ban for Cities, Counties Passes Texas Senate | Texas Scorecard

🚨Taxpayer-Funded Lobbying Ban for Cities, Counties Passes Texas Senate🚨

“The vast majority of Texans in both political parties have long-supported ending taxpayer-funded lobbying and it is a top priority for me,” Dan Patrick stated. “Texas voters simply do not want the local officials they have elected to represent them spending their tax dollars on hired-gun lobbyists who often have no connection to their community and may be working against their interests.”

Though SB 10 doesn’t prohibit city or county officials from personally lobbying for or against pending legislation and does not require them to register as a lobbyist under state law, they would be unable to be compensated with taxpayer dollars.

City and county governments that violate SB 10 can be held financially liable for litigation expenses and may seek an injunction prohibiting further lobbying activity. Further taxpayer-funded lobbying can be fined, and taxpayers may seek restitution for attorney’s fees and other legal expenses.

EXCLUSIVE: Biden administration to release 400 migrant families per day by June, up from 50 in January

“The number of individuals enrolled in the ICE Alternatives to Detention program has increased from 50 per day to 200 per day in March 2021,” an ICE document states.

“Within 90 days, the enrollment is projected to double to 400 per day. It is because of this unusual and compelling urgency that the Government requires the [emergency family reception sites] to meet the critical mission requirements of housing, feeding, transporting, and providing medical attention to these thousands of asylum-seeking families along the southwest border.”
