From the PPA:
Texas Gov. Perry is blocking the vote on HB222 (the bill that legalized land-based poker in Texas).Â Let’s all amp up the pressure!
Phone: (800) 252-9600
I believe we should hit with calls and Twitters.Â This was effective at getting us heard in Minn., so let’s try it here.Â I wrote up some Tweets to Twitter.Â It takes just seconds to send these out, so let’s all pitch in!
Click here to send Tweet #1: RT @PPApoker: PLZ tell TX @GovernorPerry at (800) 252-9600 to stop blocking a vote on HB 222, a bill that allows poker in Texas. PLS RT!”
Click here to send Tweet #2: “RT @PPApoker: PLZ tell TX @GovernorPerry at (800) 252-9600 that poker is a game of skill that should be legal in Texas. PLS RT.”
Also, if Perry follows you on Twitter, you can send him a direct message:

I posted this to P5s at http://www.pocketfives.com/poker-forums/7/new-letter-to-congress-please-send-4240404 and http://www.pocketfives.com/poker-forums/8/texas-poker-legalization-people-living-in-texas-plz-read-4204172 .Â If you get a chance, please consider posting a message of encouragement there to get others to pitch in.Â After all, 2+2 responded to this by giving me a warning; P5s responded by stickying my thread for the day (I didn’t ask them to).
