Dallas GOP Sues To Keep 128 Democrats Off The Ballot, While AFL-CIO Snubs O’Rourke

by Rhonda Fanning @

Just before midnight on Friday, the Dallas County GOP filed a lawsuit seeking to remove 128 Democratic candidates from the county ballot. Republicans say the candidates’ paperwork didn’t include an authentic signature of Democratic party chair, Carol Donovan. Gromer Jeffers , a political writer for the Dallas Morning News, says there’s evidence that someone other than Donovan signed the candidates’ filing petitions.

Open Or Closed? Here's What Happens In A Partial Government Shutdown

by @

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Ye4heQO1v0o Updated at 5:08 p.m. ET So, here we go again. The federal government is once more on the verge of a shutdown, and just like the last time, in October 2013, there will some things you'll notice that are shuttered and others you won't. Office of Management and Budget Director Mick Mulvaney told reporters on Friday that the Trump administration is going to manage the shutdown differently than the last time. "We're not going to weaponize it," he said. But for the most part, like four years ago, essential services will continue, and essential workers will remain on the job, albeit without pay. That means: Social Security: Those checks will continue to be mailed out in what is a largely automated process. Military: The active-duty military will remain on the job, and military operations in places like Afghanistan would continue. Guidance from the Defense Department issued on Friday said military personnel would not be paid — neither would necessary

From Texas Standard: Anglers come from all over the world to fish Lake Fork, a 27,000-acre lake in east Texas with a reputation for producing monster fish. And in their quest to land a lunker, those fishermen also sustain the local economy. Which is why a new species in the lake has caused quite a bit of concern. And it’s not a species of fish, but a plant – an invasive floating fern called giant salvinia .

Women's Marches are taking place across the country on the anniversary of Donald Trump's inauguration. Last year, tens of thousands of protesters packed streets in many cities — including in Austin, where an estimated 50,000 people crowded along Congress Avenue and on the Capitol grounds. This morning, a much smaller group of protesters gathered at Austin City Hall in preparation for a march to the Texas Capitol. It’s blustery, but there’s still quite a crowd at City Hall protesting Trump. There’s a handful of counter-protesters, too. pic.twitter.com/MbnsMsiIci — Ashley Lopez (@AshLopezRadio) January 20, 2018 Obviously not as packed as last year, but lots of Austinites are protesting Donald Trump again on the anniversary of the Women’s March. pic.twitter.com/DxBewjRk6D — Ashley Lopez (@AshLopezRadio) January 20, 2018 Lisa Smith, Jessica Salinas and Jill Young came to protest today.

Federal Judge Says Texas Still Needs Oversight To Fix Its 'Broken' Foster Care System

Federal Judge Says Texas Still Needs Oversight To Fix Its 'Broken' Foster Care System

by Marissa Evans, Texas Tribune @

A federal judge has ruled Texas will continue to need oversight of how it cares for vulnerable children, even after sweeping legislative changes last year. In a 116-page opinion, U.S. District Judge Janis Jack ruled on Friday afternoon that Texas leaders will remain under the watchful eye of federal special masters for three years as they implement more policies for how abused and neglected children are protected. She wrote in her ruling that “the system remains broken and DFPS has demonstrated an unwillingness to take tangible steps to fix the broken system.” “Because the State of Texas has failed to rectify long-standing problems with its foster-care system despite decades of awareness and extensive reports and recommendations by internal and external authorities, this Court concludes that “unless directed otherwise by some authority, the studies and testing will continue, no remediation will occur and the dangerous condition[s] will continue to exist,” Jack wrote.

Trump Signs Funding Bill, Bringing Shutdown To An End

Trump Signs Funding Bill, Bringing Shutdown To An End

by Scott Detrow @

Updated at 9:05 p.m. ET President Trump has signed a stopgap spending bill passed by Congress on Monday, ending the partial shutdown of the federal government after three days. The White House has said normal government operations will resume by Tuesday morning. The bill passed the Senate on Monday afternoon with a 81-18 vote, but the real hurdle was the procedural vote earlier in the day requiring at least 60 votes. That's where the measure hit a snafu late Friday night, triggering the stalemate. The House later passed the 17-day extension by a 266-150 vote. Shortly before the Monday procedural vote was set to begin, Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer, D-N.Y., announced that he would vote to reopen the government along with enough Democrats needed to advance the bill. After 24 hours of furious negotiation over plans to consider immigration legislation in the coming weeks, the Senate voted to move forward with the continuing resolution, which would fund the government through Feb. 8.

Updated at 9:45 p.m. ET The federal government is in the midst of a partial shutdown, and it appears it will be that way for some time. President Trump and members of Congress publicly say they want to reopen the federal government, but, in the first day of a shutdown, Republicans and Democrats on both sides of Pennsylvania Avenue showed no signs of ending their stalemate. In a midafternoon press conference Saturday, White House Legislative Affairs Director Marc Short reiterated the position of the president and congressional GOP leadership that they will not negotiate on immigration and the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals program while the government is shut down. Short also placed blame on Democrats. "We continue to remain anxious to reach a deal on DACA, and we look forward to resuming those negotiations as soon as the Senate Democrats reopen the government," Short said. Members of the House and Senate reconvened at the Capitol on Saturday to try to find a way to resolve the

Is Wind Energy Making Texas Even Warmer? Scientists Say No.

Is Wind Energy Making Texas Even Warmer? Scientists Say No.

by Laura Rice @

From Texas Standard . Global warming and climate change are two oft-used phrases in the conversation about energy production. Much of the time, scientists and reporters present the remedy as “green” energy, such as solar or wind. But there’s a lot we still don’t know about the climate effects of these energy sources. Texas leads the nation in wind energy production, so it makes sense that researchers from New York would turn to the Lone Star State to study how wind power affects local climates.

Report Finds Asylum Seekers In El Paso Face Violence And Delay

From Texas Standard: President Donald Trump took office a year ago promising to ramp up border security. New data from the Hope Border Institute and the Borderland Immigration Council show the situation for asylum-seekers has gotten worse. The U.S. can’t turn away migrants who express fear of persecution; they're legally entitled to a screening interview to see if they qualify for asylum. But new data show asylum-seekers are being denied those interviews and being mistreated, both at the border and while in detention.

Texas Comptroller, The State Bureaucrat Who Can Grind Budgets To A Halt

Texas Comptroller, The State Bureaucrat Who Can Grind Budgets To A Halt

by Ben Philpott @

The Texas Legislature writes the state budget. The governor signs it into law. But with a single action, the Texas comptroller can kill the entire appropriations process. But before we get to that, let's start with the real burning issue: How do you pronounce comptroller? Do you pronounce it controller or comptroller? The name, job description and spelling originally come from England. The full title there is Comptroller General of the Receipt and Issue of Her Majesty's Exchequer and Auditor General of Public Accounts . Anyway, Texas started using it and pronounces it with the P. "It's really what side of the Red River you're on is how you pronounce it," says UT Law School Professor Hugh Brady. OK, pronunciation aside, what does the office do? The simple answer: The office deals with the state's money. Former state representative and budget writer Talmadge Heflin knows a thing or two about the comptroller’s office. He’s calls the comptroller the chief financial officer of the state.

Government Hurtles Toward Midnight Shutdown

by Susan Davis @

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Ye4heQO1v0o Updated at 11:16 p.m. ET A partial government shutdown now looks inevitable after the Senate lacks the votes on a stopgap spending bill late Friday night. The vote was 50-48 in favor of the measure with Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell, R-Ky., yet to vote. The White House, Senate Republicans and Senate Democrats were unable to reach a deal to get to the 60 votes needed to proceed after a flurry of meetings, leading to finger-pointing and blame over who was responsible for the unprecedented shutdown on the one-year anniversary of President Trump's inauguration. Shutdowns are usually the product of divided government, but this likely shutdown would be the first time one occurred when the same party controlled both chambers of Congress and the White House. Republicans stepped up their attacks on Democrats throughout the day Friday, blaming them for forcing the standoff. McConnell, R-Ky., accused Democrats of using immigration as a

Senate To Vote Monday On Ending Shutdown As Talks Continue

Senate To Vote Monday On Ending Shutdown As Talks Continue

by Brett Neely @

Updated at 10:01 p.m. ET The Senate will vote at noon on Monday to end the government shutdown. Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell took to the floor Sunday evening and laid out a plan to restore government funding for three weeks and consider immigration proposals, while bipartisan talks continue to end the impasse that has triggered a partial government shutdown since Friday night. Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer objected to a vote on Sunday evening, but not the plan to vote on Monday. "I am happy to continue my discussion with the majority leader about reopening the government," Schumer said. "We've had several conversations. Talks will continue, but we have yet to reach an agreement on a path forward that would be acceptable to both sides." A vote was originally scheduled for 1 a.m. ET, but instead the Senate adjourned until 10 a.m. Monday morning. McConnell said that, if the impasse ends, "It would be my intention to proceed to legislation that would address DACA, border

The Surprising Role Of Land Commissioner, Launch Pad Of Texas Politics

The Surprising Role Of Land Commissioner, Launch Pad Of Texas Politics

by Ben Philpott @

The state of Texas owns a bunch of land. That's because, in case you didn't know, we used to be our own country and joined the United States without the need for a land grant from the Feds. All that land needs someone – and an office – to look after it. "I think the [The Texas General] Land Office describes the duties of the land commissioner pretty well," says Bill Peacock , vice president of research at the Texas Public Policy Foundation. "It's basically to take care of the public lands of the state of Texas that don't belong to a specific agency or universities or things like that." That includes making money off those lands. "The primary function of the land commissioner and Land Office is to manage those lands to bring in revenue for the permanent school fund," Peacock said. "And that in turn puts money into the available school fund which is used to help support public education – particularly in support of purchasing textbooks for students." That's right: The Texas land
