Stop the HSR – Capitol Day

Registering more than 1 person? Please complete the form for each person attending.

Texans Against High-Speed Rail (TAHSR) is hosting a Stop the HSR Capitol Day for all those who oppose the Dallas-Houston HSR. Your involvement in the legislative process is crucial for our elected officials to better understand why we oppose this project. TAHSR will provide transportation to Austin from 4 key locations between Dallas and Houston. Departures will be between 6am-8am for arrival in Austin no later than 10am. We will host an informational session (address of meeting location will be sent to those providing their own transportation) to explain bills filed that will support our efforts and protect our private property rights and tax dollars. We will provide key talking points to share with legislators and/or their staff regarding these bills and the importance of their commitment to private property rights. Attendees will then visit assigned offices of key members of the Legislature to relay these important messages and provide personal accounts of how this project is already harming our state. Lunch will be on your own (the Capitol Grill is a great option!), and you will have time to visit the House and Senate chambers to watch proceedings. The day will conclude at a reception in the Capitol with members of the House and Senate. Departures from Austin will begin around 4pm. Dress for the day is business casual or business.

If you are a seasoned Capitol visitor or have never visited a member of the Texas Legislature, we will prepare you with the necessary information about the bills and what to expect during your visit. We want everyone to feel empowered to engage with our elected officials to encourage them to oppose the Dallas-Houston HSR, and this Stop the HSR Capitol Day is the very best way to do it! We look forward to seeing you in Austin!
