TribCast: The House passes its budget — civilly

On this week’s TribCast, Emily talks to Ayan, Emma, Cassi and Patrick about the House’s big night tackling the next biennial budget, a repeat performance by corporate opponents of last session’s "bathroom bill" and the anti-abortion legislation moving in the Capitol.

The debate on HB-1, the House state budget bill, continues into its 12th hour as members gather to confer with the House Parliamentarian on March 27, 2019.


The Texas Tribune put this podcast on hiatus in August 2023 due to staffing changes in the newsroom. The TribCast was The Texas Tribune’s weekly political podcast, hosted by Matthew Watkins and featuring a rotating cast of editors, reporters and other guests.
