It must be the Dallas Morning News!! There are only 31 Senators and the last I heard 21 of them signed onto the bill as co-sponsors. With the 2/3 rule in the Senate, that means there are enough co-sponsors to bring the bill to the floor for a vote and more than the simple majority needed to pass it.

The last I heard, Rep. Driver's bill had over 90 co-sponsors in the House, far more than the simple majority to pass it.

Chas.
Right now there are 97 Co-Authors, 4 Joint Authors & Driver as Primary Author for HB 284.

The Legislative web site doesn't list the complete author or co-sponsor info for SB 378 beyond Wentworth as Primary Author (and it only shows as "filed" for the status).
