Austin Rep. Donna Howard wants you to actually see what a goofball Don McLeroy is, not just hear it (photo by Jana Birchum)
Austin Rep. Donna Howard’s HB 772, which would require video webcasts of State Board of Education meetings, easily passed the House moments ago. Currently, SBOE webcasts are audio only, which makes it difficult for people around the state to know whether a completely idiotic statement was uttered by their SBOE rep or someone else’s.
The bill now must get through the Senate.
