REP. SPRINGER FILES SEVERAL BILLS ON OPENING DAY OF FILING FOR THE 85TH SESSION
Austin, TX-- Representative Drew Springer (HD 68) filed his first round of bills for the 85th Legislative Session. Typically there are over 6,000 bills filed each session, with approximately 1,200 that become law. Over the next 90 days, Rep. Springer will be filing a broad range of bills focused on promoting rural values, protecting liberties, and fixing local issues.
In focusing on local issues, the representative filed a bill that will allow rural communities the option to restrict sex offenders from child safety zones, a benefit that larger cities already have. Additionally, Springer in the coming weeks will be filing legislation to further protect the Second Amendment and defend the rights of lawful gun owners.
When asked about his plans for additional bills to file, Rep. Springer replied, "I will continue to look for bills that benefit rural Texas, respect basic human rights, and protect our freedom and liberties from state and federal overreach!"
