How bills get passed (or don't) in the Texas legislature
Tuesday was opening day of the 87th Texas Legislature (also known as "nerd prom," according to state Capitol insiders). We revisit a conversation from our third episode ever (!) about the bills and the bees (aka how laws are made here in Texas) with friend and shero Stephanie Chiarello, founder of the Over the Lege comedy series. We also reflect on how much is different from the last Texas legislative session 2 years ago.

Will y’all be my best friends?
Love listening to this podcast! Learning a ton about TX politics, activism, and advocacy while also laughing out loud. Keep it up Ladies. Also - if we could get a Pod Save America + Rabble team up episode minds would be blown 🤩
