It's not too much to ask that bill records be correct. (3.00 / 1)

In a previous Session I worked to stop a bad, punitive-minded bill by Rep. Tony Goolsby.  I visited with Rep. Jim Dunnam's office about the concern.  He discovered an error in Goolsby's bill, that violated the Rules.  So he raised a point of order.  The Republican Speaker, Craddick, agreed with the point of order and approved it.  Goolsby sat down, and his bill died.  Then we elected Carol Kent to represent that district.

On Monday, Rep. Phil King passed a rule amendment to stop that kind of point of order.  There may be other ways of stopping a bad-old Goolsby bill - - but Phil King's rule gives us one less chance.
