Connecting the dots

Let me get this straight. The Texas Department of Public Safety has identified $22.5 million in asset forfeiture funds that it says Texas should use for a new database of biometric facial recognition data on drivers. But the Texas House of Representatives already resoundingly rejected that idea in a 111-26 vote in 2003. So why not spend the $22.5 million to expand drug courts, which more or less everybody thinks is a good idea?

Ann thinks that'd be a good solution.
