FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE 03/01/2013
Statement by Rep. Four Price on Texas Independence Day
"This Saturday, March 2, is a momentous day for all Texans. It is a time to remember the historic events that took place 177 years ago today when our ancestors declared independence from Mexico, and assembled together to create a new republic that would protect the lives, liberty and property of the people of Texas. In tribute, I passed House Resolution 329 to commemorate Texas Independence Day 2013 and honor the immense contributions of those individuals who helped found the Republic of Texas.
Texas Independence Day is a time to reflect on what makes Texas the greatest state in the nation – our dedication to economic growth and prosperity; our promotion of fiscal responsibility and the long term well-being of our state; and our commitment to Texas families through the promotion of strong systems of healthcare, education and public safety. Tomorrow, I encourage all Texans to proudly fly our state flag. God bless the Lone Star State."
