Re: SB349 by Creighton: Clarification of School Activity Grounds

If I'm reading things correctly, this bill is dead since it was not placed on the House Daily Calendar by 10:00 PM last night.

Re: HB1911 Com Substitute

Fascinating read on some of what is going on in the Capitol this session: http://politics.blog.mystatesman.com/2017/05/18/7829/ Yes it comes from the liberal rag of the Statesman, but there are some very interesting insights, particularly from the Mexican American Legislative Caucus and others. You ...

Re: RIP - Fines for Signs

We all know of many incidents where public property was posted. Does anyone know of one single fine that was levied? Just one? No fines can be levied until the defendant has been taken to court and found guilty of breaking the law. The fines will be levied from the date the AG's office was notified...

Re: SB 16 - priority bill, reduction of LTC fees

So do seniors pay the $40.00 or the $5.00 as listed here? SECTION 6. Section 411.195, Government Code, is amended to read as follows: Sec. 411.195. REDUCTION OF CERTAIN FEES FOR SENIOR CITIZENS. Notwithstanding any other provision of this subchapter, if an applicant for the license is 60 years of a...

Re: HB1911 Com Substitute

I can just about guarantee that if these Freedom Caucus members are around next session, they will feel the wrath of the House leadership and will have a hard time getting hearings on their bills in committee. Retribution, regardless of how it is veiled (opposing these bills on "policy") i...

Re: sb263 stuck in homeland security

It will only be dead if it isn't reported out of the House Committee by the end of the day, Saturday, May 20th. Then it can also die in Calendars. Then it can die on the floor... Keep in mind, there was a minor "reset" of the committee calendars after Monday, May 8th. That was the last day...

Re: HB1911 Com Substitute

So is there enough support/time for 1911 to pass? I'm predicting death in the Calendars Committee, but I am no where near the know, let alone in it. :iagree: If it isn't on the calendar Monday or Tuesday it probably dies in calendars. Has to at least get a first reading, yeah? Second. First was whe...
