AusChron Wraps Up The 80th

Posted in The Budget, 80th Legislature, Central Texas, Around The State, The Lege at 4:06 pm by wcnews

This week the AusChron has a couple of post-session wrap-ups.

First up this one how the Austin area legislators did, The Dust Settles: How did local legislators fare? (They didn’t include Sen. Steve Ogden or Rep. Dan Gattis) They mention Rep. Dawnna Dukes, Rep. Mike Krusee, and Rep. Patrick Rose as being the two or three locals who “..may be forced into frontline battles to defend their House seats.” And they had this little tidbit:

For what it’s worth, GOP Capitol buzz reports Craddick was meeting last week with his inner circle – among them HillCo’s Bill Miller, lobbyist Bill Messer, and deep pockets Richard Weekley and James Leininger – plotting primary revenge against those Republicans who led the uprising against him.

I wonder who they could have been talking about?

They also did a wrap on on the issues, Rodeo 80. Areas highlighted include the budget, Austin area, the environment, TYC, Voting Rights and Women’s Rights.
