SB: Retirement watch
No big news on that front yet and there may be a historically significant reason
That question keeps coming
up, naturally, at this point in the cycle and who could blame those who decide
to call it a career? This session was particularly exhausting for the members.
No, it wasn’t emotionally taxing like 2017 when illegal immigration and restrictions
on a minority’s use of public facilities dominated the news. Instead it was tiring
because members were doing heavy lifting on broad policy initiatives including school
finance, property taxes, mental health care, and more.
Yes, just like the Super
Bowl it was lopsided – state government versus local governments – and
some complained of boredom.
Texas House and Senate members who have been
through the slog of the last decade may want to fully return to the private
sector. But why do that when you can leave your imprint on the next generation
