A Texas proposal with the remotest of chances

In Texas, Resistance to a Renewed Call for an Annual Roundup of Legislators

A bill in Texas would change not only how lawmakers conduct business, but also how often, in a state where legislators meet only in odd-numbered years.
The only people who might think this is a good idea are legislators who want to become more consequential in the lives of the voters.  I don't think Texas voters want that  and I am pretty sure that Gov. Perry likes the fact that the legislature can meet for only a few days every other year.  The current system forces them to be more judicious with their time in Austin and keeps them from thinking up news ways to spend your money.
