Thursday on The Chad Hasty Show, McKenzie Taylor, Senior Editor aThe Texan joined the broadcast to share news from the state capitol in Austin.

Taylor and Hasty discussed HB-3, a bill which is intended to clarify and restrict the duties and limitations of state leaders and government, and prevent bounds being over-stepped, in a future time of crisis such as was experienced during the COVID-29 pandemic declaration with it's associated restrictions on freedom of movement and commerce.

Taylor said,

Essentially this is a bill that looks to codify much of Governor Abbott's coronavirus response, pandemic response that's been happening over the last year. Essentially we're seeing a lot of division here among Republicans and Democrats, in terms of what [is] the best way to go about codifying some sort of response, or finding a of way to address a pandemic in the future...This would be an opportunity for the legislature to pass a bill that would allow for...a pandemic oversight committee...that essentially could terminate a pandemic disaster declaration, or a such related order, after thirty days.
