Legislature redefines poor performance

Star-Telegram | 05/31/2005 | Legislature redefines poor performance: "The Texas legislative session opened with low expectations.

Somehow, the current lawmakers still managed to overcome that and accomplish even less.

House Speaker Tom Craddick told newspaper editorial writers before the session that the Legislature rarely takes action until forced by the courts. At the time, it seemed like his opinion, not his mission.

Now, lawmakers await a July 6 Texas Supreme Court hearing to learn whether they're constitutionally required to go back to work and raise more money for even a basic system of public schools.

Heck, they got more done two years ago, even after some Democrats took a long spring-break trip to Ardmore, Okla."
