This is a rebroadcast of May's Meeting with guest speaker Chief Justice of the Fourth Court of Appeals, joined by Gen Van Cleve of All On The Line, and Chief of Staff from Senator Jose Menendez' office, Ms. Pearl Cruz.
Justice Martinez discusses the 87th Texas Lege and Texas Senate Bill 11, which was withdrawn last month amid considerable controversy. "SB 11 would have reduced the number of appeals court districts from 14 to seven.

The bill is expected to reemerge sometime later this session or next. Please call your Democratic representatives and thank them for their hard work, long hours, and diligence.
