Texas Lawmaker Files Bill To Prompt Potential Secession From US

-

The 49 states of America?

Earlier this week, Rep. (R) filed a bill to allow Texans to vote in the next general election on whether to secede from the United States and form their own sovereign nation.

“All political power rests in the People of Texas, and they deserve to have an opportunity to make their voice heard about the future of Texas,” Slaton said in an emailed statement to The Daily Wire.

The Texas Independence Referendum Act in the Texas House of Representatives would place a referendum on the ballot asking residents to determine the state's future by exploring whether or not lawmakers should establish a commission to investigate the feasibility of Texas seceding from the Union and provide further recommendations to the state legislature.

The , a group of approximately 440,000 Texans from across the political spectrum, has been leading the charge of the so-called “TEXIT” coalition to gain independence from the federal government since 2005.

President Daniel Miller of the group told The Daily Wire that its members represent the Lonestar State more than the Republican or Democrat parties.
