Lots of buzz following yesterday’s meetings at the Capitol (which I still contend is made of Milk Chocolate. Get within 10 feet of it and you’ll be tempted to take a bite like I was) and last nights social gathering for the Texas Beer Institute, a consortium of production breweries.
Lee Nichols caught up with me and a handful of others last night (and even had a chance to take a fun picture of Live Oak’s Chip McElroy) and wrote a couple of stories on the matter. He has an Austin Chronicle piece up in addition to another story at his LegeLand area of the Chronicle. Both are recommended reading.
The Burnt Orange Report weighs in on HB 660 and HB 602 and suggests Texas could drink its way to fiscal solvency.
There will be tons more news tomorrow and over the weekend. I just did a couple of interviews for WOAI 1200 AM Radio (San Antonio) and Texas Public Radio who will have stories in advance of the rally, and will be covering the rally itself.
Things are looking up in Texas! Looks like I won’t have to make a last stand at the Alamo after all.
