Paul Burka of Tx Monthly says he's surprised Dennis Bonnen got a chairmanship


We were too, sort of, but we don't follow state lawmakin' like Burka, who's the go-to guy when the National TVs want something about Texas explained.

Burka wrote this about how Our Man in Austin and other solons fared in the new committee assignments doled out by the new speaker:

"Bonnen. Frankly, I’m surprised that he got a chairmanship (Land and Resource Management). He was a very controversial chair of Environmental Reg with little patience for the other side. But he is a good legislator and a shrewd observer of the process. He may go from the frying pan into the fire if his committee gets Eminent Domain."
