         WHEREAS, It is incumbent on elected officials at all levels
  of government to work together in order to advance the will of the
  people and help create a more prosperous future for our country; and
         WHEREAS, When the President of the United States threatens
  any member of the Texas Senate, it must be considered a threat to
  all Texas Senators, as well as a threat to the civility and decorum
  that are essential to a functioning democracy; moreover, the
  president and the members of the executive branch of the federal
  government should not focus on intimidating elected officials and
  should instead focus on creating common sense legislation and
  policies for the betterment of our country; now, therefore, be it
         RESOLVED, That the 85th Legislature of the State of Texas
  hereby encourage the President of the United States to refrain from
  threatening elected officials.
