AUSTIN, Texas - May 8, 2017 (Investorideas.com Newswire) A group of patients, caregivers, and advocates will gather at the Texas State Capitol today for an eleventh-hour push to keep critical medical marijuana legislation alive. They will be urging members of the House Calendars Committee to schedule a vote on HB 2107, which would likely pass now that 77 of 150 House members have signed on as co-authors.
At 10:30 a.m. CT on the south steps of the capitol, Texans for Responsible Marijuana Policy will hold a news conference with some of the patients and caregivers immediately before going inside to lobby committee members.
The House Committee on Public Health approved HB 2107 by a vote of 7-2 on Friday. The legislation, which would fix the state's currently unworkable medical marijuana program and make it more inclusive, gained significant traction after the committee heard hours of testimony from supporters last Tuesday. The number of representatives signed on as either joint or co-authors jumped from five to more than 70 the following day.
