Texas House Committee on Criminal Jurisprudence Members Appointed

We expect lots of good things from this committee, but if there are no good bills that make it out of the committee, we will only have the Democrats to blame, since there are 7 Democrats and only 2 Republicans on the committee.

CBO Debbie Riddle (R)

Terri Hodge (D)

Juan Escobar (D)

How many of of these committee members voted for last session's most embarassing HB 1476 (Sexy Cheerleading)?

No one who voted for HB 1476 has the character to work on this important committee.

We'll have to rely on Terri Hodge, Juan Escobar, Barbara Caraway, Paul Moreno, and Paula Pierson to stop the grandstanding and self-promoting tendencies of the gutless dregs who wound up on this committee.
