NPT Capitol: April fools day in the House
State Rep. Larry Taylor, R-League city, just took the back mic at the House floor with a very stern look upon his face. He asked Speaker Straus if he would be recognized for a motion. A slightly befuddled Straus took it in his stride and replied, “sure.”
Taylor then made a motion to vacate the chair… followed by a split second of eerie silence
…before Taylor finished his sentence, “Chair of the House Democratic Caucus, Jim Dunnam.”
Taylor is the Chair of the Republican caucus in the House. Today is April fools.
