The Texas House is right where it was two years ago, entering an uncertain election cycle with a lame-duck leader. Does that signal a new path? bit.ly/2s2WNaH via @rossramsey #txlege
Big and bittersweet news in this thread. One of the best journalists on the planet — @eramshaw — is leaving @TexasTribune to start a new publication on her own and taking our @amzam with her.

The question isn’t whether Texas House Speaker Dennis Bonnen will be out of a job. It’s when. #txlege bit.ly/2MCu5VK twitter.com/rossramsey/sta…
No good precedent, and a lot of disagreement about whether the pro tempore takes over. Cleanest line of succession is a special session with the House selecting a new speaker. twitter.com/amanbatheja/st…
RT @amanbatheja: @rossramsey Barring a special session, what happens if a speaker steps down during the interim?
More to the point, it's 4 chairs (Calendars, Public education, Natural resources and Energy Resources, and a vice chair of International relations & economic development). These are people at the Speaker's table calling for his "expedient, deliberate and well-planned transition." twitter.com/rossramsey/sta…
