The sun sets on TxDOT

No sooner did I get the post up about the action over the weekend then my phone starts ringing with the news that HB 300 died... and 1959, the safety net bill, as well thanks to the work of Rep. Leibowitz. Apparently, someone changed the next sunset review from two years to four years and no one was going to let this drag on until 2013.

Mad props are due Terri Hall, Hank Gilbert and everyone at TURF who, we've heard, kept the phones ringing all day. Not to mention the House D's and more than a few Republicans who finally decided that enough was really enough.

So, unless something happens tomorrow, the Lege is bound for a special. And won't that be fun.
