Grusendorf claims he has the votes
Yep, Grusendorf says that he enough votes to get HB 2 out of the House. He compromised with rural Republicans who are still apprehensive to the school bill. He got them to agree to vote for it by allocating more money to transportation costs since some routes in West Texas are as long as 90 miles. However, the word on the street is that Grusendorf will want the final vote to only be a majority of the quorum present, not the majority of the house since many rural Republicans are considering walking out when it comes time to vote - thus abstaining from voting. The next few days are sure to be interesting..
