House Bill 180 by Rep. Bill Zedler (Arlington), the “covenant marriage” bill, is scheduled for debate by the full House of Representatives on Tuesday, April 24th.
The bill is extremely poorly drafted and does not address numerous issues that must be addressed to successfully implement a new kind of marriage. The bill is opposed by Family Law Section of the State Bar of Texas because it is so poorly drafted. Your author is also opposed because it is clearly bad policy (as outlined in my other blog).
Please call your Texas House member’s office Monday or before noon on Tuesday. Ask for the aide who works on family law issues, specify the bill and state your views.
