Legeland on TV

Sunday on KXAN, Monday on Fox 7

Legeland on TV

It's been a busy couple of days for the notoriously camera-shy folks at the Chronicle's Legeland desk.

Thanks to Josh Hinkel of KXAN for inviting me to take part in Sunday's round table legislative talk with Ben Philpott from KUT and Christy Hoppe from the Dallas Morning News. Check out our chat about school finance, Gov. Rick Perry annoying Californians, and the state of the Republican race for the 2014 Lieutenant Governor nomination.

The early morning punditry didn't stop there: This morning Fox 7 invited Legeland to share a couch with former California state rep turned Texas Public Policy Foundation vice-president Chuck Devore to talk more school finance, immigration reform and Medicaid. Thanks to the whole Good Day Austin team, especially Katherine Kisiel and Steve Uhler.
