If this pans out we can definitely put a final wrap on the legislative season.
Two key state House and Senate negotiators said today that they have reached an agreement on a bill to govern the Texas Windstorm Insurance Association.
Rep. John Smithee, R-Amarillo, said today that he and his Senate counterpart, Sen. John Carona, R-Dallas, have compromised on the highly political bill. Now, they have to sell the bill to each chamber.
Carona said today that he was “optimistic” that the Senate could pass a measure.
And Smithee said: “I think we can probably pass it in the House.”
According to the Trib, both chambers will vote on the conference committee reports today. I’m sure I speak for many people when I say I hope they get a reasonable bill passed so they can all get the hell out of town.
