Bill could turn back page, return power to Texas board of ed

The House and Senate were both working late into the night on Tuesday, as numerous session's most hotly debated issues continue to hang into the balance. The Texas House is taking up SB 5 on Tuesday.

"We are grateful to the Senate for recognizing the critical need for relative caregivers to take in our abused and neglected children".

Some say a bill already approved by the Texas Senate and scheduled for a state House vote Tuesday would return sweeping influence to the board. Dutton later asked that the doors to the House be opened so senators could hear the House's discontent on other side of the Capitol.

Both the previous law and the measure in the Texas legislature list authorized photo ID to include: a driver's license, USA military ID, a US passport and a Texas concealed handgun license.

It all began when state Rep.

Larson said he did not know that Gov.

"I've got six", Larson said. They say the bill is more about conservative ideology than medicine.

With a crucial court hearing just weeks away, the Texas House is taking up a measure aimed at addressing concerns about the voter ID law that legislators passed in 2011. He then addressed members near the back of the chamber. Data shows us that when children must be removed from a risky home situation, that they usually have better outcomes when placed with relatives who already know and love them, rather than strangers in foster care. They worry the bill could stifle the booming drone industry. By the end of the last session, only one such bill had stalled in the upper chamber.

The Texas Tribune thanks its sponsors.
