TX Progressives wonder if #txlege actually had last Sine Die, more

The Texas Progressive Alliance is still debating whether it's pronounced "cov-fee-fee" or "cov-fay-fay" as it brings you this week's roundup, and salutes the latest accomplishment of Texas baseball fans’ favorite ex-St. Louis Cardinal.

 Off the Kuff notes the final passage of Voter ID 2.0, which does not and cannot address the issue of the original bill's discriminatory intent but which will make the Texas GOP feel a little better about itself.

 There's a case to be made for Russian involvement in the 2016 election; it's just not a convincing one, according to PDiddie at Brains and Eggs.

 SocraticGadfly sees Hillary Clinton's latest blame-passer about the election and wonders, among other things, if some of the latest complaints about sexism couldn't apply to her own comments.

 Neil at All People Have Value does not understand why citizens of Houston litter at Stuebner-Airline Park. APHV is part of NeilAquino.com.

Texas Vox salutes the extension of the Texas Emissions Reductions Program.

Lewisville Texan Journal profiles would-be Democratic challengers to Congresscritter Michael Burgess.

Dos Centavos wonders why Houston hasn’t joined the SB4 lawsuit. (Note: This blogger wonders what’s holding Dallas back.)


 And here are some posts of interest from other Texas blogs.

 The Dallas Observer names their best and worst legislators from this past session.

 Better Texas Blog complains that the Lege is out of sync with Texas values and needs.

 Linda Cuellar applauds the removal of Confederate monuments in New Orleans.

 The TSTA Blog lets Matt Rinaldi have it.

 Space City Weather gives a primer on when to avoid breathing in Houston. Will it help all the newcomers moving there that Culture Map Houston reports? And, are either of those blogs, or others, passing out Houston flooding maps?

 Grits for Breakfast asserts that Texas gets more credit than it deserves for reducing incarceration rates.

 Rep. Cesar Blanco is not going to be silent in the face of bigotry.

Texas Observer has in-depth analysis of the finally-settled racial pollution lawsuit between EPA and TCEQ. Shorter version? Too little, too late, on EPA’s part, but that that’s nothing new.
