Follow live: Opening day at the Texas Legislature

Follow Statesman reporters Chuck Lindell and Tim Eaton live tweeting from the start of the 84th Texas Legislature. Our @chucklindell will be in the Senate, while @TimEaton30 will be tweeting from the House.

In the session’s first real order of business, the members of the Texas House will decide if they want to keep Speaker Joe Straus at the helm or give the job to his tea party-backed challenger, state Rep. Scott Turner.

See our Legislative preview online for more on the session, our Capitol reporting team and what to expect from the Texas House and Texas Senate this year.
