On this week's edition of WFAA-TV's Inside Texas Politics, host Jason Whitely, the Fort Worth Star-Telegram's Bud Kennedy and Tribune Executive Editor Ross Ramsey confront the burning question heading into the final two weeks of the 84th Legislature: Will lawmakers be able to get together, or will they be back for a special session?

Also: Jason and Bud talk to the two candidates in a runoff for the open seat in southwestern Dallas' City Council District 3; the City of Dallas is gutting its plastic bag ban, but its principal architect insist it's a retooling and not a reversal; Denton's overturned fracking ban is debated from the left and the right; the state agricultural commissioner's push to allow school districts to have deep-fried foods and soda vending machines; a boneheaded move by the Austin City Manager's staff; and more.
