State Representative Carol Alvardo started this petition to Your Texas State elected official

Please join Texas State Representative Carol Alvarado, in ending this unfair tax on women.  The Texas constitution exempts from sales tax items that are considered medically necessary such as drugs, needles, glasses, certain dietary supplements and others. What is not included on this list is feminine hygiene products.  This is wrong, ask any female, feminine hygiene products are a necessity, trust me we don't have a choice.  This is an unfair tax on women, an economic burden that men do not have to shoulder.  Let's end the tampon tax in Texas.  No Tax. PERIOD.
