#TXLEGE: Dickey letters set #SpecialSession expectations....


"Remember those who rule over you, who have spoken the word of God to you, whose faith follow, considering the outcome of their conduct."
Hebrews 13:7

Yesterday, RPT chairman James Dickey sent the following letter to Lt. Governor Patrick:



Meanwhile, he sent the following letter to Joe Straus:



This is a savvy move for Dickey; while there are certain obvious political conclusions that can be drawn, it's more notable for the fact that it happened at all.  One would think this would constitute the basic blocking and tackling of running a political party. Unfortunately, that's not been the case before, but we suppose better late than never.

We also find it notable that the Texas Tribune has yet to report on this topic.  For an organization who usually prides itself on being the first to report breaking information, it seems...odd...that they would overlook this one.  Readers can ask them why on Twitter.

Bottom Line: It'll be interesting to see how this unfolds, but Dickey's action strikes this website as constructive preparation for the special session.
