Dr. Tom Oliverson serves as a State Representative in the Texas Legislature. He joined Rep. Crenshaw to cover some of the major political battles happening in the latest legislative session. They talk about why the legislature banned transgender therapies for minors, the debate between the State House and Senate over property tax reform, the latest on efforts to pass school choice, and the pros and cons of term limits. The conversation ends with a critique of a cottage political industry in Texas, and across the country, which is monetizing conservative outrage without doing anything to actually win elections.
