Busted, Texas Legislative Leaders Lied

Amendments to HB 41, the TSA bill passed on Monday, were ready to go Friday. Contrary to media reports and a release from Straus, the bill wasn’t significantly altered over the weekend. The Straus team is claiming to have changed the bill over the weekend to obscure the fact they lost.

Any claims that the AG had to weigh in on changes are false. Below is a letter from AG Abbott to Lt. Governor David Dewhurst’s office, officially endorsing the TSA bill as consistent with federal law and the U.S. Constitution. It was sent June 15th.

Claims that Simpson was not ready with his amendments on Friday are false. Below is an email sent Friday from the Texas Legislative Council to Rep. Simpson’s office certifying his amendments, dealing with AG Greg Abbott’s concerns, were ready to be brought up. It was sent before Speaker Straus gaveled in and took roll call.
