Despite promise of forced vote, Patrick may still be one vote short of nuclear option for Senate Bill 2

Stuck at 15 votes? The situation is in flux this weekend as Patrick lobbies GOP members to support moving blocker bills to then take up SB2 on Monday

The Texas Senate’s presiding officer is working this weekend to make good on his promise of throwing out the chamber’s traditions on Monday so that he can pass the session’s signature bill on property tax “reform,” SB2.

GOP senators held a conference call this afternoon at 3pm, Quorum Report has learned, though it was not clear whether Lt. Gov. Dan Patrick was invited to be on the call.
