86th Legislative Session Kicks Off Tomorrow

There will be much fanfare tomorrow when Texas’ 86th legislative session kicks off.  Already legislators have filed hundreds of bills with the typical session seeing around 8,000 bills filed between the House and the Senate.

Perhaps the most critical highlight of opening day is the election of the new Speaker of the House.  It is expected that Rep. Dennis Bonnen from Angleton will secure the seat, but nothing is certain until the votes have been cast.
