Supporters Hope to Return Wendy Davis to State Senate Education Committee


Back in January, Lt. Gov. David Dewhurst removed Fort Worth State Sen. Wendy Davis from the senate’s education committee, after she led a filibuster last session against $5 billion in school cuts. Dewhurst told the Observer the move “took into account Senators’ requests and geographic diversity, as well as the strengths and talents of each Senator in determining committee assignments.” Right.

Since her removal, Davis supporters have been gathering signatures asking for her reinstatement. We’ll see if those end up meaning anything.
