Initially, more confirmation hearings were expected last week, but some delays were announced. The House is expected to convene on Friday.

Justice reform has become a hot topic on Capitol Hill.

But reform would not be possible if conservative states had not previously paved the road.

Another Reason to Love Texas- Education Reform

Just in case you needed another reason to love Texas, Governor Rick Perry has given us one. Yesterday, Perry signed education reforms into law which will shake up graduation requirements and put less emphasis on testing. By signing House Bills 5, 809, 842, and 3662, as well as Senate Bill 441, Perry achieved a significant overhaul of public education.
