First Amendment Tuesday: Games with the Calendar


"and for me, that utterance may be given to me, that I may open my mouth boldly to make known the mystery of the gospel,"
Ephesians 6:19

With Thursday's deadline to pass bills out of the originating chamber approaching, games with the Texas House calendar have stepped up to another level.

Tony McDonald (Empower Texans):



Highlights:
  • House walking bills progressively slower.
    • Bills they're working on today (Tuesday) were originally scheduled for last Friday.
  • Explains the different calendars.
  • MAJOR STATE CALENDAR (Wed) -- A couple bad things and a judicial bypass bill.
  • At this point, it's impossible to pass something that isn't on a calendar.
  • Chubbing -- Wasting time to kill bills.
    • de facto filibuster.
  • Details games that have been historically been played with the clock late in session.
  • Did oppo. research on Paul Sadler for Ted Cruz.



Highlights:
  • Sylvia Garcia has a "community schools" bill up.
    • Open invitation for Planned Parenthood to come into schools.



Highlights:

  • We will never get rid of pre-K.
  • HB 4105 on floor today. (Allegedly)
  • Pastor Bill on floor today. (Allegedly)
