Breaking news: no specifics in 126 page report!
Earlier this week, Gov. Goodhair said a 30 day special session was likely before the end of the month. But today Speaker Craddick said the special will wait till after the Supreme Court rules.
I have no problem with that. In fact, I think it makes a lot of sense. The problem is, however, his reasoning is utterly absurd (via the Dallas Morning News):
"Even if we went in tomorrow and passed a bill," Craddick said, "we don't know what the court is going to say is wrong with the system because the lower court didn't tell us what the specifics were – they just said it's broken."
Didn't tell us the specifics? Are you kidding?
Judge Dietz -- the district court judge -- issued a 126-page "Findings of Fact and Conclusions of Law." Perhaps the Speaker didn't see it yet? If so, it's right here, and it's very specific.
Oh, but he did get one thing right. Judge Dietz did say the system is broken. Know why? BECAUSE IT IS!
