CONGRATULATIONS TO ALL HEIRS OF ORIGINAL LAND GRANTS IN TEXAS!
HOUSE BILL 724 WAS PASSED BY THE TEXAS HOUSE OF REPRESENTATIVES ON MAY 8, 2013.
The web site www.texaslegislatureonline.com reports activity on HB 724 as “…sent to Engrossment.”
‘Engrossment’ is defined as an official copy of a bill that has been passed by one government chamber (in this case the Texas House), and the engrossed (official) copy is the one that is sent to the other government body (in this case the Texas Senate).
We will secure our sponsor in the Senate soon and their name(s) will be posted here. The sponsor will file the engrossed bill and receive a Senate bill number. We will post that information here as soon as we have it.
Thanks to all HEIRS members for their help in getting through this stage! You are fighters, not quitters, and we appreciate all of you.
