Here is your Morning Brief for March 25, 2015.

Chad Hasty,

Final Day at the Texas State Capitol

Today is the third and final broadcast from the Capitol in Austin. I want to again say thanks to Representative John Frullo and his staff for hosting the show this week. As you could tell from the interviews this week, it is very busy at the Capitol and Rep. Frullo was very kind in allowing me to do the show from his office.

I also want to thank all of the lawmakers who took time out of their busy schedules to come on the show this week. It has been a real honor to have everyone on who was able to make it. I hope you have enjoyed the show the past few days as much as I have had hosting them. If you missed any of my interviews this week, we should have video up by next week of all the interviews, so check back.

One of the common items that keeps coming up with lawmakers? Tax cuts. There will be a battle between the House and Senate over property taxes. The Senate Republicans are ready to cut them, the House Republicans... well they are split. What does that mean to the average homeowner? Could mean about $200. Things are really just getting heated up down here so don't expect this to be resolved soon.

The debate over local control continues and my question still remains. Where do state lawmakers draw the line? Are we just talking about plastic bag bans and fracking? Or are we talking all local ordinances that violate freedom and property rights?

The session may be more than halfway over, but there is still much work to be done.

One more broadcast day from the Capitol coming up and still many questions left to be asked.

By the way, Gourdough's and the Salty Sow in Austin are legit.
