Among those participating in Lobby Day tomorrow will be President Rob Schlein and Treasurer David Keeton of Log Cabin Republicans Dallas (pictured above at tonight’s reception). Schlein said it’s possible there are other LCR members coming from other parts of the state as well. Schlein and Keeton said they’re scheduled to meet with Republican State Rep. Dan Branch of Dallas tomorrow for 15 minutes. A few weeks ago we reported that Branch, who serves as chairman of the House Higher Education Committee, may decide whether a bill advances that would grant domestic partner benefits to state university employees. However, the bill reportedly has been referred to the Insurance Committee instead. Still, Branch could cast important votes on pro-equality legislation that reaches the House floor.
