#TXLEGE: BOMBSHELL Announcement from Bonnen and TPPF!!!

Bonnen, speaking at TPPF's policy orientation in 2016.

"endeavoring to keep the unity of the Spirit in the bond of peace."
Ephesians 4:3

If you don't understand the Capitol, you won't get it; but this is huge:
AUSTIN—The Texas Public Policy Foundation is pleased to announce Rep. Dennis Bonnen, R-Angleton, potentially the next Speaker of the Texas House, will provide a keynote address on Thursday, Jan. 10, 2019, at 8:00 a.m. at the Texas Public Policy Foundation’s 17th Annual Policy Orientation.

“The Texas Public Policy Foundation is honored to host Rep. Dennis Bonnen for a keynote address at our Policy Orientation,” said TPPF’s Executive Director Kevin Roberts. “Texas has a unique opportunity in the next session to make progress on some of the most pressing challenges facing Texans and, as Rep. Bonnen has said, ‘the Texas House is ready to go to work.’ We look forward to hearing from, and working with, Rep. Bonnen and the rest of the Texas legislature this coming session.”
It is impossible to overstate the significance of this event.  One of the open secrets about the capitol in recent sessions has been the degree to which the Straus/Gordon Johnson team despises TPPF.  The Straus/Gordon Johnson team loathes TPPF more than any conservative organization.  That includes Empower Texans.

Five years ago,  TPPF was instrumental in publicizing the 83rd Legislature's 26% spending increase.  It was the most devastating attack the Straus/Gordon Johnson team ever faced.  They've never forgiven TPPF.

Dennis Bonnen agreeing to keynote TPPF's premiere event of the biennium means that TPPF will no longer be on the outs with the speaker's office.

Bottom Line: It's subtle, but it's huge....
