‘Tinkering’ TX Lawmakers Confer 1,000 New Laws


Beginning today, there are nearly 1,000 new Texas laws to obey, reports the Dallas Morning News. Those affected include grieving parents, divorcing couples, pregnant teenagers, gun owners, drinkers, criminals and victims.

The new legislation – 755 bills containing close to 1,000 new rules and regulations – is the work of the part-time Legislature scrambling to make laws during the limited time the Texas Constitution allows it to meet: five months every two years. The lawmakers have tinkered with just about everything.
