More Details on the Unanimous House Vote
More news from Laura Prather in Austin regarding who reports:
“HB 4973, the Texas Anti-SLAPP statute, was just passed out of the House unanimously. The bill now moves to the Texas Senate for consideration. The Senate State Affairs Committee has already approved the Senate companion bill, SB 1565, unanimously.
Because the Texas House approved HB 2973 by more than 2/3rds majority, if the Senate approves the bill in a similar fashion, the bill would take effect immediately upon Governor Perry’s signature.
We hope to be on the Senate floor early next week and will continue to keep you posted of the progress.”
