  •  The 3 laws DRo cites are what I saw (7+ / 0-)

    while following the filibuster yesterday. I had mixed feelings about the other two not passing and figured Perry would call another session.

    The juvenile law is necessary to get the state in line with a SCOTUS ruling last year. Since Texas has had tendencies to go overboard with deplorable criminal justice, I am glad they have no choice but to toe the line on juvenile sentences.

    The question is since they knew that one was essential, why didn't they get it done ASAP.  Bad management or the hidden agenda...

    As far as the infrastructure projects, I'm wondering if any are related to the KXL. They might want to delay funding given Obama's speech yesterday. If he does nix it, Perry will have to use executive discretion and wait for the legislature to reconvene in '15.

    I'm sure it will involve plenty of melodrama and minimal reason.
