Progress Texas lays out a different path then what we’re likely to hear from Texas Gov. Rick Perry in this State of the State (SotS) speech today.  Take a look, Investing in Our Future – The State of the State in Texas.

Today, Governor Rick Perry gives his 7th State of the State address. We thought this would be the perfect opportunity to catch up on what is going on in the Texas Legislature, brief you on the latest news on the major issues, and point you towards resources where you can learn more. Hopefully, this will give you a better starting point for learning about some of the major issues facing the 83rd Texas Legislature.
