Texas governor gives first clear support for 'bathroom bill'

And the Senate version already looked like a longshot to survive given strong opposition by business groups and Republican House Speaker Joe Straus, as well as Republican Gov. Greg Abbott's failure to publicly endorse it.

Senate Bill 329 would make it a felony for providers to perform abortions after five months of pregnancy. Abbott was noncommittal over similar language that passed the Texas Senate in March over opposition from businesses including Facebook and Google, celebrities and disapproval from the National Football League and NBA.

House leaders said Tuesday they have had enough.

The Senate amended House Bill 23 so that it no longer requires municipalities to cover their workers's survivors.

Houston Republican Rep. Dan Huberty's proposal increases annual, per-student funding about $200 to $5,350.

Advocates estimate 30,000 people in the state of Florida are arrested for marijuana offenses each year. The SCDOT says it needs at least $1 billion a year for 20 years to bring roads up to good condition. As of Thursday morning it has not been assigned a committee in the Texas House.

Sen. Bill Rabon, R-Brunswick, said he was pulled over once in West Virginia by a trooper for "impeding traffic" because he was going 55 in a posted 55-mph work zone, but 11 people behind him wanted to pass him.

Paddie's bill requires annual background checks, but not fingerprinting.

North Pole Republican Sen.

If the gun bills can't clear the Judiciary Committee they are unlikely to be heard on the Senate floor. It's named after the former National Football League and University of Florida quarterback who was home-schooled in Florida but competed with public-school teammates.

The measure was first introduced in 2015 after state troopers Scott Johnson and Gabriel Rich were killed while responding to a call in Tanana in 2014.

In his letters, he says both the National Basketball Association and NFL have "taken a strong stance over the last several years in opposing similar discriminatory measures". And if the school makes changes to accommodate that student, the Texas Attorney General could take legal action against the school.

The board unanimously approved the change Wednesday.

"We want to send kids the message that it's not OK, but that if they do do something to break the law that we still want them to be able to prosper", James said.

The hearing Wednesday is officially on HB 2899. "We have a chance to fix the school finance system in the state of Texas".
