Democrats and Republicans Battle Over Familiar Agenda in 83rd Texas Legislature

Republicans retain control of the House, the Senate and the governor’s mansion, so they will set the agenda. Democrats, as in years past, will try persuasive arguments, fiery debates and parliamentary maneuvers to try to shape the bills that end up on Gov. Rick Perry’s desk.
