Lobbying For a Worthy Cause
It’s rare to see a lobbyist doing something as useful as advocating for laws that reduce jail populations. Meet former Texas State Rep. Suzanna Gratia Hupp, R-Lampasas, who recently opened a lobbying practice.
Ms. Hupp is the lobbyist for and one of three founders of Texans for Public Safety Solutions. It supports passage of HB 2391, which would let law enforcement officers write citations to -- and not have to take to jail -- people who are found with less than 2 ounces of marijuana, an expired driver's license or in the act of trespassing.
