On Saturday, February 4, 2017, Texas State Senator Paul Bettencourt sponsored a Precinct Chair Legislative Workshop for Harris County Precinct Chairs with updates from the Texas Senate from Bettencourt and Texas House Updates from State Representatives. HCRP Chair Paul Simpson talked about the work underway at the county level. Bettencourt addressed Property Tax Legislation, State Representative Dwayne Bohac discussed Tax Credit Scholarship Legislation, and Mike Schofield talked about Faithless Elector and Voter ID Legislation. Freshmen Representatives Valoree Swanson, Tom Oliverson, and Kevin Roberts talked about legislation on which they’ve been working. Clyde Bryan of The Executive Council, Robin and Jim Lennon of Kingwood TEA Party and Joseph McReynolds of Spring Branch Republicans reviewed grassroots efforts, and former mayoral candidate Bill King addressed issues of pension and debt reform for the city of Houston. The meeting was held at regular Harris County GOP hangout, Cafe Adobe – one of Houston’s more popular Tex-Mex restaurants.
