We've had a Republican majority in the TX House since the 2002 elections. We barely had a majority last session (76-74) with a speaker with more Democrat than Republican support, but now it's an overwhelming majority (99-51). We can achieve a quorum with just 1 Democrat showing up. They can forget about road trips to Oklahoma or New Mexico to shut down the legislature. It should be much easier to pass the voter ID bill this session!

Errrr...... Have had the State House since the election of 2002 or the swearing in in Jan. 03. Remember Tom DeLay and his recent convictions this past week? Well it centered on that 2002 election in which money was sent to the RNC in DC and back to seven Texas House candidates of which six won. That win gave the Texas House to the Gop and in 2003 they redistricted the Congressional districts [Rats ran to OK and NM] giving the GOP a 21-11 seat majority with the election in 2004. The democrats had a 17-15 CD majority after the 2001 redistricting.
