This week on The Texan’s “Weekly Roundup,” the reporting team discusses a new Republican candidate for governor, the results of a Sid Miller lawsuit regarding COVID-19 relief for white farmers, a new addition to the Texas Freedom Caucus, and the items placed on the special session call by Governor Abbott. We also talk through the new election reform bills and the potential that Democrats will once again walk out to kill such proposals, as well as a resolution from a Republican that would punish them if they do. Additionally, the team covers Texas public school performance, state senate retirements, and a battle between a Christian nonprofit and the IRS.
