Texas Take


Sep 16, 2016

A Houston Chronicle investigation reveals that thousands of special-needs children in Texas are being turned away by a quietly imposed state policy, and the presidential race gets uglier than ever -- with a Texas twist. House Speaker Joe Straus outlines priorities for the next legislative session that are different than the Senate's. And then there's a brewing fight over union-dues deductions from government paychecks, and Rick Perry's dancing prowess -- or lack thereof.

Texas politics are never boring, and the intriguing highlights and these and other topics that have dominated headlines in recent days are explored in this week's Texas Take: The Podcast -- the leading political podcast in the Lone Star State, with a Facebook Live post so you can see the show each week as it happens.
