Blockbuster Senate Finance hearing later this month
All the various Texas state agencies dealing with criminal justice are busily preparing for a February 21 hearing of the Senate Finance Committee (see the agenda here). This will be the first, big public discussion by senators of the implications of proposed tight-times budgets on the state's criminal justice system, and should give us more insight into how legislators are likely to react to various agency recommendations. See details on other planned Senate Finance Committee meetings here.
