RESOLUTION ON TASA & TASB

Whereas the Republican Party of Texas Platform states in plank 198, “Tax-Funded Lobbying:
We oppose using tax dollars to hire lobbyists or pay dues to associations that lobby the
Legislature.”

Whereas the Republican Party of Texas Platform plank 146 states, “Gender Identity: The
official position of the Texas schools shall be that there are only two genders; biological male
and biological female. We oppose transgender normalizing curriculum and pronoun use.”

Whereas the Texas Association of School Administrators and the Texas Association of School
Boards support and codify the Transgender and the LGBTQ Community and the usage of
preferred pronouns.

Whereas the Republican Party of Texas Platform plank 62 states “Right to Free Speech: We
resolve that free speech shall remain free; that opinions may be spoken, recorded, printed,
published, and shared without censorship or reprisal; and that Congress will ensure that
individuals’ rights to free speech will not be infringed upon with unconstitutional laws defining
“hate speech” and “hate crimes.”

Whereas the Texas Association of School Boards funds the National Association of School
Boards who petitioned the Federal Government to label parents who exercise their free
speech rights by addressing their local School Boards in regard to Critical Race Theory and
Covid Mandates as “Domestic Terrorists”

Whereas the Republican Party of Texas Platform plank 138 states, “……..We reject Critical Race
Theory as a post-Marxist ideology that seeks to undermine the system of law and order itself
and to reduce individuals to their group identity alone. We support legislation to remove this
ideology from government programs, including education involving race, discrimination, and
racial awareness. To facilitate the appreciation of our American identity, the contrast between
freedom and the tyrannical history of socialism/communism throughout history must be
taught………”

Whereas the Texas Association of School Boards and the Texas Association of School
Administrators promote the Marxist ideologies of Critical Race Theory aka Cultural Relevance,
Social Justice, Diversity, Equity and Inclusion.

Whereas in funding through tax dollars the lobbying associations of Texas Association of
School Administrators and the Texas Association of School Boards we are funding our own
demise and freedom as Americans.

Therefore let it be resolved the Harris County Republican Party Executive Committee calls on
all Harris County School Districts to stop funding Texas Association of School Administrators
and Texas Association of School Boards which ultimately work to the demise of our American
core principles and values.

Therefore let it be resolved that the Harris County Republican Executive Committee calls on
our Texas State Legislators to take action through legislative means and enacting laws , per the
Republican Party of Texas Platform, to stop taxpayer funded lobbying through the Texas
Association of School Administrators and the Texas Association of School Boards.
