Talk:Texas House of Representatives
|WikiProject United States / Texas / State Legislatures||(Rated C-class, High-importance)|
When it comes to make an article about districts of the Texas House, I found http://www.chron.com/CDA/archives/archive.mpl?id=1994_1182086 ("4 House seats, 19 candidates/GOPs, Democrats vie for vacated posts in March primary" - Houston Chronicle - February 7, 1994) which explains the state of some Texas districts in the 1990s.

The numbers the house split between republicans and democrats cannot be correct. I sure its more like 99 to 51 not 79/71.
Cook committee hearing closure controversy (2013)
I'm not sure this minor incident in one special session is worth mentioning in a general article about the Texas Legislature. This is also somewhat biased, claiming Chairman Cook was "breaching Texas State Legislature operating procedures," which is not a factual statement. The House Rules allow the Chairman to recess or close committee meetings at any time, and there are no "operating procedures" or protocols regarding how long committee meetings must last or how many witnesses must be heard. The statements made are not supported by the article cited. I recommend removing the entire paragraph.GregE625 (talk) 19:46, 26 January 2015 (UTC)
