Texas lawmakers battle with Land Office over transparency in Alamo restoration

Texas lawmakers battle with Land Office over transparency in Alamo restoration



2017-12-07T01:54:00+0000

“The $75 million commitment was a commitment for the people of Texas, and it’s important Texans know how we spend that money,” said Senate Finance Committee Chairwoman Jane Nelson.

Because the Alamo Trust is a private organization, it and its staff aren't subject to the Texas Public Information Act. Some committee members said that they'd like to see Alamo staff working directly for the state for transparency's sake.

Leave them alone!! The police say it is way easier to catch them when they try to run.

While i would love to ban this. It personally annoys the hell out of me but i think it’s targeting a specific group. What about chicks that wear these yoga pants and you can see her fallopian tubes?

That looks so stupid. If you want to do that , do it in the house not in public. You can't get hired looking like that

What's the difference Btwn sagging pants and a teenage girl or woman with booty shorts and a low cut top?? 🤔

Gotta love how the party of "small government" always looks for new & inventive ways to regulate individuals. Never businesses, or weapons of war, only the way I choose to wear my clothes, or who I go to bed with at night, or whether a woman can decide what's best for her situation.

It would be awesome if they put the same amount of time and effort into passing law's that actually make a difference

Yep. When a guys butt is hanging out his pants, it’s disgusting.

I do not think it’s the under paid law enforcement officers duty to raise YOUR children. Finger flick your child on top of the head and don’t give them the option of how to wear his pants improperly. Good grief!!!

There’s more important things to worry about than saggy pants!!! How about keeping our kids safe at schools ????!?!?

Well on a brighter note. If they go to jail or prison the other inmates will know that they are available for lovin

Saggy pants are stupid in my opinion but who cares!?! Let me see... Gun violence... Saggy pants... Gun violence... Saggy pants? Really?!? Are you kidding me?!?

Let's outlaw every little thing we don't like or agree with! America has become full of pansies....😂

Why??? Women go around with their breasts barely covered over the nipples, butt cheeks hanging out of too short shorts. At least with baggy pants,no actual flesh is exposed.

Yes and I hope Texas does the same thing . it looks nasty How so they walk

While I don’t like saggy pants, there are more pressing issues such as gun violence, gangs, drugs etc. “Banning” saggy pants is only putting a bandaid on a bigger problem

IF just half of the idiots knew what it means in prisons--They would pull them up in a heartbeat.!!!

Lol....if you cant outlaw abortion..or semi automatic assault rifles then what makes you think you can outlaw how people dress 😂😂

Bad parenting skills should be outlawed. My parents would kill me if I walked around with my pants like that when I was growing up. I had self respect and my parents raised me better than that. Smh

Why wear a pair of jeans, down to your knees, then three pairs of something else underneath, plus boxer shorts, why not just stick to the shorts? I dont get it.

The city just trying to make a buck . I know of some families including mine in Houston that would be very happy if they picked up the hookers and drug dealers that are all over our neighborhoods. They are gonna start ticketing people in shopping centers and malls you know where the suburbs are . No one in the hood will be getting ticketed .

South Carolina isn’t trying to do this. You’re citing fake internet bs.

Thats it fake news. Post some senseless no sense about britches. As if there werent bigger issues?! As an employer, Id never hire someone who cant dress as professionally. End of story. Next.

Yea!!! I will protest and march for this one Lisa Love Schuble!!! I absolutely hate this!!! Even the stupid offenders in prison with elastisized pants do this and I HATE it Raymond Calvillo!

Anything to make money off , give a ticket for idont like it looks trashy ,but theres bigger thing to fix like the guns

we cannot legislate moarlity... of course there IS a school of thought that says "LET THEM HAVE SAGGY PANTS!" this allows one to determine a person of poor moral charachter without having to actively engage in dialougue!-)

#TBT to 10 years ago today when the Rockets got win number 11 in a row at New Orleans (1st in the West at the time) on the way to 22 straight! T-Mac (34pts on 14-26 FG) and Yao (28pts, 14reb) both dominated.

We go for 11 in a row tomorrow at home (7PM CT) as we return from the All-Star Break! #RunAsOne 🚀

I think I caught a few glimpses of the recently departed Rasual Butler in there. RIP...

The Houston Rockets were not first in the West after this. They were still like 5th they were 35-20. NOLA was still ahead of them in fact! They were 3rd on the West tho after they beat New Orleans again for their 18th consecutive win. They didn’t obtain 1st in the West until they won their 22nd game in a row.

Lol Chris Paul on the hornets

T-Mac 😍😍

Man I miss some T Mac

Loved that rockets squad. That’s the 22 game win streak team if I’m not mistaken

This years team is better

man, good memories, 2008 was a great year for the rockets tho, with that 22nd game winning streak..

How come Rockets never retire T Mac’s number????

I had so much fun watching that season!

We need another Yao

Chris Boyadjian remember this? Anand Parekh you better be nervous we are hungry this year!

Can’t wait till tomorrow! No Rockets in a week has been painful.

Harden tackled .. I mean he was pushed by Covington for sure 😄

Never noticed the people sitting courtside falling to the floor

The game has not been finished, we should not give up. Life is the same, that’s why I love it.

I woulda put up a brick.

E! G! 4! THREEE!

I believe that we are witnessing that magic again. what a great job this organization is doing. I dont think I can handle another knicks series but orlando style would be ok. love dem Houston Rockets

Rockets are my favorite NBA team, but Harden should have gotten a foul called

i miss the close up shots during the games. we just the soccer pan shot from the cheap seats all game.

EG FOR 3!!!! 🚀🚀
