Young Conservatives of Texas Unveils Interactive Website
FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
March 28, 2013
AUSTIN, TX — Today, Young Conservatives of Texas (YCT) announced their new website to inform legislators and citizens about good and bad legislation filed in the Texas House and Senate.
YCT has been shaping Texas politics for over 35 years and produces the longest running and most respected ratings of the Texas Legislature. Prior to each Session, YCT releases a legislative agenda describing the types of bills they hope to see proposed by legislators.
“This project in a lot of ways is the natural bridge between our agenda and our ratings,” said YCT State Chairman Jeff Morris. “Many legislators have asked how to do better on our ratings—this is our answer.”
The website will roll out in two parts. Today the site will include the top 5 bills per topic, per chamber; early next month, it will include every bill YCT is taking a stance on. The organization will release their stance on just over 500 bills.
“We hope this interactive site will motivate legislators to get these bills out of committee and to the floors of both chambers for a vote,” said YCT Senior Vice Chairman Jeramy Kitchen. “If you are a citizen and see particular bills you are passionate about, please contact your representatives and make your voice heard.”
To visit the interactive website, please go to vote.yct.org.
Young Conservatives of Texas is a non-partisan organization that has promoted conservatism at universities across the Lone Star State for over three decades. The State’s most active political youth organization, YCT is composed of hundreds of members and alumni who participate in the full spectrum of politics. YCT issues the most respected ratings of the Texas legislature and is the only conservative group to have done so without interruption over the past 19 legislative sessions.
