It was originally passed on the local and uncontested calendar, then pulled down and debated on the floor. I don't know what the first two amendments to it do, but Amendment 3 was by Zaffirini to add her bill against texting while driving. This was ruled germane to the bill on peace officers carrying guns, even when questioned.

If this is true, we should get SB 354 added real quick also. If texting is germane, certainly adding more people carrying is also germane. Unfortunately, there is probably no way to get to Hegar and Wentworth to suggest it. This is the last two hours before the bill will die if not passed. I bet it is passed tonight no matter what amendments are offered and accepted.

Absolutely infuriating. :mad5

Civil correspondence from me to many members of the legislature are on their way. Sometimes I can't tell if I'm watching my government at work, or a circus.

A circus smells better.

Yeah! Popcorn, Fresh Roasted Peanuts, and Cotton Candy! I'm sure that's what you're referring to, right?
