*Will Be Proposed Amendment Number 1 on the ballot November 8, 2011*
With only ten minutes remaining in the Texas House for consideration of non-local Senate Bills, Speaker Straus recognized Representative Bonnen for an important motion.
“I make the motion to move to suspend all necessary rules to take up and consider Senate Bill 516. Senate Bill 516 is Representative Fletcher’s bill, and it is appropriate to get this done tonight. It’s to support our veterans who have given so much to us, so I move to suspend all necessary rules to pull this bill up,” Representative Bonnen motioned.
