Pre-filing for the 82nd Texas Legislature is in full swing, with over 370 bills already filed since the Nov. 8 kick-off. Let the craziness officially begin.
One of the most controversial bills that will receive consideration when the session kicks off at noon January 11, 2011, will govern cell phone usage in a moving vehicle. Already four members of the Texas House and two members of the Texas Senate have jumped in with proposals to penalize drivers using wireless devices while behind the wheel.
This is one bill we should expect action on.
