Washington County could become the latest county to proclaim its support of Second Amendment rights.

Commissioners will meet on Tuesday to consider a resolution declaring the county a “Second Amendment Strong Hold County”.

Similar resolutions have been passed in dozens of counties, including Grimes and Waller Counties, which say their respective counties will not support or use government resources for the purpose of enforcing law that unconstitutionally infringes on citizens’ right to keep and bear arms.

Also in session Tuesday, commissioners will look at entering into a lease agreement with Bob Handley for a hangar at the Brenham Municipal Airport. The hangar will be used for Washington County EMS’s Aviation Department multi-mission helicopter.

Commissioners will also consider:

  • Adoption of an order authorizing the issuance and sale of Washington County 2020 limited tax refunding bonds.
  • Accepting a bid for administrative and engineering services related to the 2020 Texas County Transportation Infrastructure Fund, administered by TxDOT.
  • Formal notice for utility installation on Koether Road by Industry Telephone Company, for an underground placement of telephone cable and inner duct in Precinct Four.
  • Approval to renew the bond for Reserve Deputy Sheriff Steve Westbrook.
  • Approval of the county investment policy, with no changes to the policy.

Commissioners will meet Tuesday morning at 9 a.m., at the Washington County Courthouse.

  1. Let’s hope they pass this before we are the last county in Texas to pass this. The birthplace of Texas should have been the first county to pass it!

  2. A resolution to declare our support of the second amendment is great. We should all be strongly supportive of every word of our U.S. constitution. Including the ones which relate to our all “individual “ rights such as free speech, voting rights and the separations of church and state. All are equally imperative for the continuation of this democratic republic. As patriotic Americans, the entire constitution deserves our protection.

  3. All on board for confirming and supporting our second amendment rights and approving the bond for Steve Westbrook
