Talton's anti-gay foster parent amendment now has a chance

In a much shorter post than expected today, I announce that Hupp announced the House members to the conference committee of Senate Bill 6. Robert Talton (R-Pasadena), who authored an amendment to ban gay foster parents, will join Hupp, Toby Goodman, John Davis, and Carlos Uresti on the committee. This gives Talton a chance to fight for the amendment, but it's still unlikely that the amendment will be on the final version of the bill.

HB 1006 passed

Well, AutoCraddick pushed through revenue caps bill HB 1006 to engrossment. He overruled points of order left and right, voted on amendments and the bill itself, and even denied Dunnam on a verification of votes. It was a tad disgraceful...

On a side note: I slacked a bit yesterday on the posts, but I'll put something up later today.
