"Left pending in committee" - until when? When is the next meeting? When will they vote on it?
Rep. Dutton said at the beginning of the meeting that all bills would be left pending for one week, to let members study the issues before voting on them. That's pretty standard operating procedure in the Texas House.
EDITED TO ADD: Chairman Dutton seemed very supportive. Vice Chair Alvarado and Rep. Rodriguez were the only vocal opponents.
