Rep. Joe Pickett said Sen. John Carona's threat to filibuster the massive TXDOT Sunset bill has left the bill "heaving and weaving."
With 15 minutes to go before the House hits itst midnight deadline, preventing it from voting on any more bills, Pickett said he wasn't going to bother to bring the bill up for a vote.
"It'll die a death over here and he won't have to filibuster," Pickett said.
"If the House kills it, they made my job easier," Carona said. "It's what we've said all along. Chairman Pickett has come to realize and admit that we had the votes. He would rather destroy the bill and see us prevail on local option taxes."
