HR 4, Amendment 7 by Cason: Protecting transparency of committee proceedings

PRO-TAXPAYER POSITION
Support Amendment
House Record Vote: 12

House Record Vote: 12

Texans have a right that their government is transparent and accountable. Unfortunately the proposed rules would have empowered each committee of the Texas House to prohibit "television, radio, or Internet broadcasts, other than official broadcasts, of any of its proceedings." The Cason Amendment would have removed that provision and protected Texans' access to their government.
