Tough Row To Hoe For Lawmakers

There are 19 weeks left in the 2021 Texas Legislative Session. There are many bills to get through, plus lawmakers have to come up with a budget. University of Houston political science professor Brandon Rottinghaus says one of the most challenging tasks will be keeping promises made in the last session regarding the school funding bill. The bill provides more money for classrooms, teacher pay and cuts local property taxes. The pandemic has caused a budget shortfall. Rottinghaus says they will have to cut in other areas, or lawmakers will have to legalize marijuana or gambling.
