Bad hand off between The Sunset commission with sunsetted the plumbers board and the Texas Department of licensing and regulation. Legislation passed it because tdlr was supposed to take it over.

They declined. HB 1550 and SB 625 presented by Sifronia Thompson D- Houston and Chris Paddie R- Marshall were unsupported.

Governor will not call a special session so unless he forces TDLR to take it over plumbing will be the wild wild west as of Sept 1 in Texas

It's a big mistake. Told my wife the gov't had to find a way for all the new illegals to get a job. Stop the regulations of the trades.

That was my first thought as well, some of these overboard conservatives trying to deregulate licensed trades. But it doesn't appear that is the case

It looks like the plumbers association called the legislations Bluff and they told them to f*** off. This was the plumbers Association fault in my opinion as much as the legislations. They did a bad disservice to their members.

Tabs official statement just came out and apparently they're not taking sides. The hcba will put a positional stance tomorrow in writing after we can draft it. I guess I'm going to give up the afternoon and try to get something written

Sifronia Thompson D- Houston and Chris Paddie R- Marshall both supported bills to postpone it two years.

Hopefully Greg Abbott will make tdlr do their job and take them in. He is using most of his political clout trying to get teachers a raise so I don't see him calling a special session over this if he wouldn't for that.

Maybe later this week. We usually put the garden in last week of May, first week of June, because we can get late frosts.
Speaking of late frosts:

Sure, if they attach a $500 tip to it...

What a treated 6x6 looks like after only 13 years. New one is a 30 year full treated.

You could always show up.

But then you'd have to change out of your flip-flops.

Got finished up early today, decided to treat my dog to a run at a local forest park. The little monster decided to treat me by rolling through some chit along the trail when I stopped for a drink of water. Had to drive that turd covered turd home and give him a bath

Hollywood actors sticking their nose in other people's business like their opinion means something special. Woody wrote a letter to Gov. Abbott about the cruel treatment of the wild hogs at the Bacon Bash, I guess expecting him to hop to and ban the event. Hopefully letter gets tossed in the trashcan.

The governor should auction the letter and donate the proceeds to the nra or some hunting group.

If I was Abbott I would toss that s*** in the trash.

Are paid uneducated entertainers. Not anything special, I have no idea why anyone gives them any respect for anything with their talent. LOL.

Abbott isn't much better though. LOL
