Texas Congressional Members' Positions On #SOPA and PIPA

by: Adam Schwitters

Wed Jan 18, 2012 at 06:00 PM CST

Below are the stated positions of every member of the Texas Congressional delegation with links to their websites so you can voice your disapproval with this dangerous legislation.

Supporting SOPA/PIPA

  • Lamar Smith - Yes, the driving force behind SOPA is not backing off of his support for this legislation.
  • John Cornyn - Cornyn was a co-sponsor of PIPA, but thanks to the overwhelming backlash against the bill, urged Congress to take more time to consider the bill, and seemed to back off from his earlier support.
  • John Carter - Carter is one of the co-sponsors of SOPA.


Have Not Yet Taken A Position

Please contact your representatives and senators and tell them to vote no on these terrible bills. If their positions have changed, please note it in the comments.

I'm surprised with John Culberson (0.00 / 0)
I'd think he would be leading the charge against it. Despite his draconian record on so many other issues, he's been very pro-tech in his time in the House. It has been his one redeeming quality, but it hasn't showed up here yet...

"Let us tenderly and kindly cherish therefore, the means of knowledge. Let us dare to read, think, speak, and write."  -  John Adams

No stand by Louie? (0.00 / 0)
I'm surprised Gohmert (my rep) hasn't yet taken a stand. He's usually in such a hurry to be on the wrong side of any issue.
