Description

After 16 hours of tense debate, the Texas House passed a bill that would outlaw so-called sanctuary cities – in part – by penalizing local officials who fail to comply with federal immigration authorities.An emotional moment came Wednesday evening when Republican state Rep. Matt Schaefer offered an amendment that would allow law enforcement to ask the immigration status of any person legally detained.The House originally gutted what opponents of the measure call the “show me your papers” language in the Senate version, limiting the questioning to officers making an arrest.Even the bill’s sponsor, state Rep. Charlie Geren, voted against the amendment.Still it passed, as did the bill.Now the Senate must decide whether to approve the House’ changes.Texas students could be subject to fewer standardized tests if a bill heard this week at the capitol becomes law.A house bill would slash the number of required state tests from 22 to 17.It would also reduce the weight of the STAAR exam when rating schools and districts and when evaluating teachers’ performance. The measure was left pending in committee.Dallas police officers and firefighters marched in downtown this week in protest of how the mayor’s been handling the pension crisis.They say Mayor Mike Rawlings could make the shortage of first responders even worse by encouraging residents to oppose a legislative fix to their failing retirement fund.Rawlings’ opposition partially centers on how much money the state would force the city to contribute. The continuing crisis worsened when pension members withdrew more than a half billion dollars from the system amid fears it was about to collapse.- - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - → Subscribe for more videos: https://www.youtube.com/user/thetexas...→ Like us on Facebook: https://www.facebook.com/texastribune→ Follow us on Twitter: https://twitter.com/texastribune
