Currently, all Texas state judges are directly accountable to the voters, who entrust them with office. But corporate lobbyists are pushing for the creation of a special “business court” with statewide judges hand-picked by the governor. HB 19 and SB 27 will needlessly strengthen the grip of the executive branch while disempowering you as a voter. 

Protect your power to hold all judges in our state accountable through your vote. Judges should serve you, not the governor. Take one minute to tweet a mighty tweet at your lawmakers to OPPOSE HB 19 & SB 27!
