Housekeeping choices

Freshman Mayes Middleton has a rough first outing on the floor but he’ll be back; a restructure of standing committees garnered little discussion

The Texas House passed two resolutions this morning – one on housekeeping and another on rules – with few amendments; thus, passing on the chance to give House staffers a raise, upending the structure of House committees and adding due process to sexual harassment complaints.

Speaker Dennis Bonnen told House members he consciously distanced himself from the rulemaking process, leaving the process to be for the members, by the members.

The most significant change that passed – which garnered little discussion – was the restructuring of House standing committees.
