By: Miller of Fort Bend H.B. No. 3077
  relating to display of the Honor and Remember flat.
         SECTION 1.  Subtitle I, Title 10, Government Code, is
  amended by adding Section 2165.006.1 to read as follows:
         Sec. 2165.006.1  DISPLAY OF HONOR AND REMEMBER FLAG. (a) In
  this section, "Honor and Remember flat" means the Honor and
  Remember, Inc. flag.
         (b)  The Honor and Remember flag shall be displayed at each
  state office building on:
               (1)  The third Saturday in May, "Armed Forces Day";
               (2)  the last Monday in May, "Memorial Day";
               (3)  the 14th day in June, "Flag Da";
               (4)  the fourth day of July, "Independence Day";
               (5)  the 11th day of November, "Veterans Day";
               (6)  National POW/MIA Recognition Day;
               (7)  the last Sunday in September, "Gold Star Mother's
  Day"; and
               (8)  Whenever there is a state military casualty.
         SECTION 2.  The Honor and Remember flag is designated as the
  symbol of our State's concern and commitment to honoring and
  remembering the lives of all members of the United States Armed
  Forces who have lost their lives while serving or as a result of
  service and their families.
         SECTION 3.  The Honor and Remember flag's red field
  represents the blood shed by brave men and women who sacrificed
  their lives for freedom and the flag's white field and border
  recognizes the purity of that sacrifice. The flag's blue star is a
  symbol of active service in military conflict that dates back to
  World War I. The flag's gold star signifies the ultimate sacrifice
  of a warrior in active service who is not returning home and
  reflects the value of the life given. The folded flag element
  highlights this nation's final tribute to a fallen service member
  and a family's sacrifice. The flag's flame symbolizes the eternal
  spirit of the departed.
         SECTION 4.  The importance of this legislation and the
  crowded condition of the calendars in both houses create an
  emergency and an imperative public necessity that the
  constitutional rule requiring bills to be read on three several
  days in each house be suspended, and this rule is hereby suspended,
  and that this Act take effect and be in force from and after its
  passage, and it is so enacted.
