 Understand your caution. 

 

 This is an organization/association known advocating the legal processes known as "Class Action".    Consumers are protected by class action against defective products or services.  Personally, I believe that consumer protection is essential in a free market where mistakes or intent bring harm to the consuming public.

So what does the bill propose?  (I looked the bill up on my phone; it was full of doublespeak.)

 

The site I was reading (which I think was the actual govt site) gave it only a 5% chance to pass.

Yes, doublespeak is a fair assessment of the bill. 

 

The bill is design to significantly restraint the criteria for a class action lawsuit is.

 

Two or more individuals harmed by a product, but suffering different losses can not be grouped together. (A bank charges two or more customers different authorized fees; because the fees are different, the consumers are not allowed to join in the suit..only consumers with exact fraudulent charges can group together)

 

As is the usual case, the devil is in the details, but I don't believe that a majority of voters want it to be made more difficult if not impossible to hold a company liable for harm to the public.

Texas among states wiling to provide the Trump Administration with personal records held on local voter rolls! :mad:

 

Remember when you thought that they were just coming after the other guy? Now they are coming after YOU.

 

Is this the ultimate act for the beginning to the end of Voter Privacy and the sanctity of the ballot box?

Based on my reading of the latest news, many of the states do not want to release private data.

A lot of that data is already publicly available (for a price in some places). Not too sure about how much in TX though.

 

That list of wanted data by the Advisory Commission on Election Integrity was worrisome; voting history, etc.?

It is looking more and more like the current situation in the executive branch is unsustainable.

Looking more and more like a 3-1/2 years situation of a "lame-duck" presidency.
