Today: A House vote on HB 63! (Secure the vote: Contact your representative!)

It’s going to be another exciting week at the Capitol!

Today in Austin, the Texas House of Representatives is set to debate and vote on Rep. Joe Moody’s bill to reduce penalties for marijuana possession. House Bill 63 eliminates the threat of arrest and jail time for up to one ounce of marijuana. It also provides for an automatic deferral and expungement, helping people avoid a criminal record and the lasting collateral consequences of a conviction.

Make sure your representative knows you support HB 63!

The House convenes at 10am, but there’s no way to know exactly when HB 63 will be considered. You can join us at the Capitol to experience this big moment in person, or tune in to the live stream from home. Follow this Facebook event page for updates, including a link to the live stream as soon as the debate begins.

CALL to Action: Please call your representative’s office in addition to using the link above to send an email. Find their phone number here and tell them you’re “a constituent calling in support of HB 63, which is being voted on today.”

Let’s flood the Capitol with support of marijuana law reform!
