Our State Rep Craig Eiland is having anger management issues. Throws the rule book up in the air in frustration, show his great statesmanship skills.
Tempers got even testier moments ago when House Calendars Chairman Todd Hunter, R-Corpus Christi wanted to suspend all necessary rules for several controversial bills on Monday’s agenda.
Rep. Craig Eiland, D-Galveston, threw the House rule book high into the air to show his disgust.
Rep. Trey Martinez Fischer, D-San Antonio, raised his voice from the back microphone – pointing out that Hunter’s extraordinarily unusual motion required one-hour notice.
“If you don’t want to enforce rules, that’s on you,” Fischer said in a loud voice to House Speaker Joe Straus, R-San Antonio. “That’s not on us.”
He also reminded Straus that House members took down former House Speaker Tom Craddick, R-Midland, and more than two years ago because of his strong-armed rule.
What has him upset is TWIA tort reform legislation. “I have to go out and work (sue) under these rules.” -Rep. Craig Eiland
Or that his sugardaddy Steve Mostyn will be disapointed in new TWIA reforms. All I know is that windstorm insurance is a backbreaker here on the island, and they don’t even cover much.
