With the American Library Association’s newest president being an outspoken Marxist, Republican State Rep. Brian Harrison of Midlothian is calling on the Texas State Library and Archives Commission to cut ties with the association. 

Harrison issued a statement this week calling on Commissioner Chair Martha Wong to cut all ties with the ALA, saying Texas should lead the fight against Marxist ideology, not subsidize it.
