Local governments across the country have begun dictating how Americans live their lives. Philadelphia taxes sugary drinks through the roof, San Francisco prohibits establishments from serving beverages with plastic straws, and Seattle charges you to purchase reusable bags at the grocery store. Unless we stand up and oppose such nanny state policies, we could see these things pop up here!

Urge your elected officials to reject all nanny state policies and support legislation to preserve individual liberty for all Texans by filling out the form below.

Send a letter to your lawmakers:
fight back against nanny state policy

Dear [lawmaker],

I am a constituent in your district writing to urge you to reject local nanny state policies that restrict my ability to buy, sell, and use legal products in Texas! Our country was founded upon the ideas of economic freedom and individual liberty, but today an increasing number of city and county laws unnecessarily restrict these rights.

Texas has already seen nanny state policies at the local level, such as the plastic bag bans. What’s more, many similar policies are gaining steam, including:

●      Sugary drink taxes

●      Plastic straw and styrofoam bans

●      Red light cameras

●      Unreasonable prohibitions on the sale and use of legal products, such as firearms


Which of Texans’ basic rights will be under assault next?

I respectfully ask you to support any legislation that will minimize or eliminate these nanny state policies and preserve individual liberty for all Texans.

Thank you for your time,

[your name]
