Strauss will allow bills to originate from the bottom up as opposed to how Craddick ruled with an iron fist.
Don't let the smear campaign fool you, Campus Carry will come up again and has a VERY good chance of passing.
TSRA was more concerned last session with getting the employer bill passed, they felt this was more important than campus carry...Campus Carry is on their radar and very important to them this session.
Strauss is not as bad as everyone thinks. While he is not as conservative as we would like, he won't force his beliefs on our legislators. He truly believes in a representative style of government.
Oh baloney. I watched the last session VERY closely. Strauss made sure the campus carry bill didn't make it to the floor until it was too late for it to pass. He and only he has that power, and he uses it routinely to squash bills he doesn't like.
Campus carry has NO chance of passing so long as Strauss is Speaker. I'll eat those words if it happens this session, but I'm not too worried about doing it. Mark my words. It will sit on the calendar until late in the session and then be brought forward when it's too late to do anything with it. Strauss is a bully and a traitor to conservatives.
