Average Texans faces myriad changes in daily life

DentonRC.com | News for Denton, Texas | AP: Texas: "With another legislative session come and gone, Texas lawmakers left the Lone Star State better for some Average Joes, worse for others and standing still on some of the biggest issues of the session.

If you're a state employee, you're getting a pay raise. If you're a teacher, you won't.

You'll still have to go to Louisiana to play the slots, but if beer, smokes and Fritos are your thing, those threats of new snack, cigarette and alcohol taxes fell flat.

And if you're putting on the pounds eating fast food for lunch every day, forget about suing that sandwich maker. Texas won't allow it."
