Release: Speaker Straus, What Happened to "The Will of the House?"
Speaker Straus stated in his inaugural address that, "The will of the House should guide this House. And the will of the House does not begin in the Speaker’s office.... It begins with the 25 million people who are proud to call themselves Texans." But he didn’t give the will of the people or the House an opportunity today. Instead he acted alone and enforced his own will upon the process, bringing to a halt the efforts of over one hundred coauthors and many thousands of individual Texans who have called, emailed, faxed, and rallied in support of this bill.
