No substantial part of the activities of the organization shall be the carrying on of propaganda, or otherwise attempting, to influence legislation, and the organization shall not participate in, or intervene in (including the publication or distribution of statements) any political campaign on behalf of any candidate for public office.

Not withstanding any of the above statements of purposes and powers, this organization shall not, except to an unsubstantial degree, engage in any activities or exercise or any powers that are not in furtherance of the primary purposes of this organization.

The organization is organized pursuant to the Texas Non-Profit Corporation Act and does not contemplate pecuniary gain or profit to the members thereof and it is organized for nonprofit purposes.
