The malignancy known as the Texas legislature is set to metastasize into a special session. The session is planned to begin on July 1.

They did not get all the work they needed to complete done in regular session.

The Texas legislature meets once every two years.

Instead of worrying about health insurance for children or poverty or other issues of merit, a silly voter identification measure took up much the legislature’s time.

Our Texas legislature does, to be fair, a little that is good. But it does much more harm than good.

I am sorry to see it come back so soon. Usually we get a two-year remission.

Houston and Texas political blogger Charles Kuffner discusses here some of the particulars of the special session.
