Legeland Gets Comfy on the Fox 7 Couch

An early morning conversation with the Texas Public Policy Foundation

It's rare that we at Legeland get a chance to cross swords directly with the Texas Public Policy Foundation. So thanks to our friends at Fox 7's Good Day Austin for Monday's invitation to talk about the state legislature with former state rep turned TPPF executive director Arlene Wohlgemuth.

In a five minute chat, we talked about the cuts to education funding (never happened, says Wohlgemuth), guns in schools (good idea, says Wohlgemuth), and cuts to the women's health program (which Wohlgemuth claimed is really a Tenth Amendment issue). Let's say there were some differences of opinion.
