Perry signs Tulia bill

No matter what, at least we can all agree that one good thing came out of the 78th Legislative Session, as Governor Perry signed a bill that allows the 13 remaining Tulia inmates to post bond and wait out the Court of Criminal Appeals' ruling as free men. Big props to Sen. John Whitmire (D, Houston) for authoring SB 1948 and to Rep. Terry Keel (R, Austin) for shepherding it through the House.
