With the filing deadline passed and the electoral maps finalized at last, we've updated the 2012 quit list.
Thirty members — that’s about 20 percent — of the Texas House have said they won't seek re-election. That includes seven Democrats and 23 Republicans. Looked at another way, it includes 17 members who are leaving to run for other offices including district attorney, state Senate, Congress and the Railroad Commission. Thirteen of the members are leaving with no announced plans for public office.
