This is unacceptable. Purely out of spite (“you killed my bill, so I’m killing yours”) today the Freedom Caucus killed over 100 bills on the local and consent calendar (where uncontroversial bills are normally fast-tracked).
Included in this were HB1158 and HB2403, bills aimed at decreasing maternal mortality in Texas. By the way, did you know that maternal mortality rates have doubled in Texas between 2011 and 2014? 😤
