LEGISLATIVE ALERT - See the attached information concerning confiscation of privately owned property (if it looks like an auto
At the Model T Ford Club of America National Membership Meeting this past weekend (Feb. 26-28) in Austin, their national legislative monitor talked about California and Missouri proposing laws to remove "junked vehicles" from private property. On March 1st we received the attached legislative alert that the gents in Austin are looking to do the same thing here in Texas. Please heed the request to contact your legislators to stop the bill in its' present form. Form letters do not do much good. Personal letters and phone calls to the local legislators offices work best. But you have to do it, or don't complain if things like this become law.
Minutes of the February 13th Tex A's Winter Meeting are included with this mailing.
