Just curious - 'reported engrossed' - what does this mean? I know the next step in the workflow is to the House, but am still curious to learn about this phrase.

If I'm not careful, I'll learn something new today...

Hm - is it considered bad form to contact the members of the House transportation committee, when they're not my personal representative?

From Carona's office:

It did pass the Senate 27-4. Now it's on to the House, which will be a bigger challenge. Everyone needs to focus on contacting their state representatives and letting them know they support the bill. It's also important that everyone contact the Speaker of the House since he has a lot of power over what bills get on the floor. We are looking for a House sponsor for our bill and I'll let you know when we find one.
Speaker is Joe Straus http://www.house.state.tx.us/speaker/welcome.htm

CALL HIM, I did

btw... looks like someone may be playing dirty. Word is Austin Fox7 news is planning on airing a distorted piece in regards to lane sharing/splitting..

Quote:
Can y'all do me another favor?? Can you light FOX's phone lines up?? (512) 476-7777

Just tell them you saw the promo for the piece they want to run about the Lane Splitting bill. That you believe it might not be fair and balanced, that it may not be representing what the bill actually proposes. [they show motorcycles zipping in and out of cars in traffic AT SPEED].

They will have you leave a voicemail... leave one asking they do the piece fairly to the actual bill.

If we light up the phone lines now, they will pull the piece, or RE DO it. PLEASE.
done it, now yall do it.^ :-)
