310 bills pre-filed Monday at Texas Lege

Bill filing at the Texas Legislature for the 80th session began yesterday, and here's the list of bills lawmakers proposed on the first day. Legislation targeting immigrants and sex offenders appear to be the popular flavors of the month, but there were good bills filed, too. I'll look through them and post a few highlights later.

I know I'll be following some of these bills. After all, Texas really does need a "state tie."

Indeed! And whatever will we do if Athens, TX isn't named "Original Home of the Hamburger"? ;)

All I know is that whenever the legisliars are in session, basic liberties and freedoms are at serious risk! Most top tier legisliars make their careers by not solving problems; they tailor bills designed to make "someone else's" lives miserable. And the lapdogs in the media heap accolades on these legisliars for their service to the taxpayers [who fund all this crap].
