Texas Government Topic marijuana legalization

 The 86th Legislative Session is currently in session. During the 85th Legislative Session, legislators filed over 6,600 bills; however, only 1,200 passed and became law. As residents of Texas, it is important to know the subjects of the 1,200 bills that became law… week, you will research laws currently under debate/discussion in the Texas legislature. Look for one that you care deeply about so that you can find out what your own representatives think and how they will likely vote. You may discuss those bills still under debate/consideration as well as those already passed and scheduled to become law. Original post: Put as much information as you can so that your group knows the subject of the bill, the status of the bill, the sponsors and signatories of the bill and the likelihood of passage (as well as when it will become effective). If the bill has yet to pass, be sure to indicate if the bill is originating in the House or the Senate. Just remember, we are talking Texas Legislative actions, not Congressional. There are some really interesting things under debate: marijuana legalization, beer to-go distributions, teacher pay raises, etc. Find something you want to talk about and educate your group about something!
