It’s finally time for some action in the Texas legislature. The mandatory wait period on presenting bills is over and here they come. On Houston’s Morning News we talked about marijuana decriminalization and disclosures to home buyers about reservoir and flood retention areas. The Texas House is expected to reveal a school finance bill related to property tax relief.
And here’s something not yet getting a lot of attention….a pair of bills filed in both houses that would bar the state, city or county governments from tearing down or moving memorials or statues, or renaming places, buildings, roads or bridges, without permission of the voters. The House bill's author says it's an attempt to keep "political correctness" from being able to "erase our history," including parts we may find uncomfortable, such as the Confederacy.
