Transcript ALERT ALERT ALERT ALERT ALERT ALERT ALERT ALERT ALERT ALERT ALERT ALERT March 1, 1983 This is an update put together at the last minute from information presented at the Texas NOW State Council meeting held February 26 & 27. If you have a question or would like more detailed information, please call me at 726-9828(h) or 799-1234x591(w). Jeanne Sommerfeld At the suggestion of the TX NOW lobbyist, G.K. Sprinkle, TX NOW has set six legislative priorities for this session. They are: SUPPORT 1) Child Support Enforcement 2) Domestic Violence Statute Changes 3) Amendment to H3 292* 4) Child Care Interim Study 5) Memorialization of ERA* OPPOSE 6) Anti-Choice Legislation ****ERA MEMORIZATION**** This is the process whereby state legislatures request that the National Congress pass an amendment. It is valuable for two reasons: 1) to put pressure on the Congress to pass the ERA 2) to give us a vote count in the state legislature good for both the chances of passage of the ERA ratification and for use in the next round of elections. To pass this bill we must find sponsors and do extensive lobbying. If you'd like to gain some grassroots political experience and increase the odds for passage of the ERA, please contact: G.K. Sprinkle, TX NOW Lobbyist Lauri Schneidau, TX ERA TF Chair 5405 Chevy Circle; Austin 78723 2810 McDuffie, #49; Houston 77098 512/926-7745(h); 512/928-4733(w) 713/527-9321 ****RAPE LEGISLATION**** We are supporting HB446/SR349 which would eliminate the marital exception for rape provided that the parties are living in separate residences and have filed for divorce. This is a narrow clause, but it is a step in the right direction. Rep. Debra Danburg and Sen. John Whitmire are sponsors. So far the bills developed by Michol O'Connor have not been filed. (See article on p.7) G.K. is checking into it. *****HB 292********** This bill seems to have the support of Gov. Mark White. It would prohibit discrimination on the basis of race, sex, creed, color or national origin and would set up an enforcement agency. TX NOW voted to lobby for inclusion of the term 'sexual orientation' in the list and actively support the bill only if it is included. ****SB 27**** This bill concerns textbook review. TX NOW supports it as amended to include that the review process require fair and equitable hearings of all sides. See article on p.7 for more on the review process. more - more - more - more - more - more-more - more
