BTC OPINION/ EDITORIAL

While HCR 50 is the idealogical new darling legislation of the 81st session, it has been gathering dust in the State Affairs office. No legislators were available for comment today at the Captiol due to Good Friday. There has bee no legislative action on HCR 50 since February, 23 2009; the date it was referred to the State Affairs committee. The show and tell we witnessed on Thursday is a heavy cloud. We can wait until Tuesday for any word on the rain.

There are 69 co-sponsors, 4 sponsors and the author, Rep. Brandon Creighton. Amid the approbation of 76 legislators is: the Vice Chair of the Calendars Committee, 6 co-sponsors on the Calendars committee, 5 State Affairs Committee members – 2 of which are also on the Calendar’s committee. With the level of collaborative and incestuous support – why hasn’t HCR 50 actually passed by now?

That is something you will have to ask your Texas Legislators.
