AudioWeekly Roundup Podcast: Election Recap, Legislative Retirements, Library Books

Catch up on the week's hottest stories in Texas politics with the reporting team at The Texan.
November 5, 2021
This week on The Texan’s “Weekly Roundup,” the team covers the results of the November 2 election — including police staffing in Austin, ballot propositions to amend the state constitution, House District 118, and bond packages throughout the state. Additionally, the reporters discuss more legislator retirements, the governor wading into the debate over “obscene” library books, the Democrats in the race for Texas attorney general, more drama on the Texas border, a vaccine mandate rescission from a Texas professional sports team, the state once again suing Biden over vaccine mandates, a new Texas Supreme Court nominee, and the latest redistricting lawsuits.
