Priorities and Assignments

Each week, Texas Scorecard Managing Editor Brandon Waltens visits with special guests and Texas Scorecard reporters, taking a look at the stories that are making headlines.

Brandon and Texas Scorecard Capitol Correspondent Jeramy Kitchen break down Gov. Greg Abbott’s State of the State address. What are the governor’s priorities? Do those priorities line up with the grassroots’ priorities?

Also, House committee assignments are out. Did new speaker Dade Phelan empower Republicans, or did he follow the lead of his predecessors and place Democrats in powerful positions to kill conservative legislation.
