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 tell your lawmakers to OPPOSE HB 19 & SB 27!
