- The Texas Independence Referendum Act, also known as “TEXIT,” was assigned to committee earlier this week.
- “The TEXIT issue has been in the minds of Texans for probably generations, it just wasn’t necessarily known as TEXIT,” Daniel Miller, president of the 440,000-member Texas Nationalist Movement, said in an interview on the “Just the News, No Noise” TV show. “Independence has always been a part of our DNA since our founding.”
- Miller cited a litany of grievances fueling the Texas independence movement, including runaway federal spending, onerous debt, regulatory overreach, and the breakdown of border security.
