Grusendorf: Sunlight Ahead for the Great State of Texas

Former GOP House Chairman Kent Grusendorf weighs in on the changing of the guard in the lower chamber

Texans are getting encouraging signals from incoming Speaker to be Dennis Bonnen that he is open to returning the office of speaker to a more traditional role –that of a presiding officer, not a commanding officer.  This is a very encouraging signal for democracy coming from the new incoming speaker.

At a recent event in East Texas, Bonnen was quoted as saying:  It is not the speaker’s job to tell [house members] the answer to the question. You might identify the question, but you don’t provide the answer. You provide the leadership to ensure that we get to a solution."  That comment is a very good signal for progress.

The complete column by Kent Grusendorf is in the R&D Department.
