Joe Straus on the 81st legislative session

Texas House Speaker Joe Straus addressed the Plano Chamber of Commerce last week.  In his speech, he offered a glimpse at how he viewed this past legislative session.  Since he has enough backers to become speaker again, this may be a helpful read.  (Via DMN Trailblazer’s blog):

“We worked together. We attacked problems, not people. We disagreed, but we never became disagreeable. On perhaps two of the most important issues, the budget and education, we reached a consensus and we passed legislation without a single no vote. That’s proof that we created a new atmosphere, one where every voice was heard and every opinion was respected.”
