Tell State Leaders to Continue to Stand Tall on Special Interest Phone Legislation

Big phone companies sent over 160 lobbyists to the Capitol this spring with an agenda to increase phone rates, reduce service quality standards, continue unjustified subsidies and prevent Texas towns from offering affordable high-speed Internet to their citizens.

At the end of the regular legislative session last week, key state leaders stood tall and told the phone companies to take a hike.

Now the phone companies are pressuring state leaders to add their special interest legislation to a special session called on school finance.

Please take action to stop this right now by using this link to contact the Texas state leaders!
