The Second Called Session of the Texas Legislature continues on.  The House and
Senate have floor sessions scheduled for tomorrow and negotiations continue on
proposals relating to the funding of the state’s transportation infrastructure.

Rep. Dan Branch (R-Dallas) announced his campaign for Texas attorney general this week.  He joins Texas Railroad Commissioner Barry Smitherman in the race to replace Texas Attorney General Greg Abbott.

Once Rep. Branch announced his candidacy for higher office, two Dallas attorneys announced they will seek his House District 108 seat.  Chart Westcott and Morgan
Meyer will face off in the Republican primary.
