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
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.
