In tale of these two cities, spotlight is on Austin, not DC
Oscar Rodriguez, TAB President
State legislators are rarely found working in Austin mid-summer, but instead are typically tending to whatever personal business sustains them and taking families on a few outings before school starts again. Members of Congress, on the other hand, usually return to D.C. after Fourth of July break ready to roll up their sleeves and knock out major legislation that funds key government services before the fall holiday season puts a damper on the workload.

Perry won't seek re-election, all eyes on Abbott
Michael Schneider, TAB Vice President, Legislative & Regulatory Affairs
Texas Gov. Rick Perry announced Monday, July 8, that he will not seek another term as governor, making it official there will be no bruising brawl amongst Republicans for the top political job in Texas. Perry said he will spend the 18 months left in his term running the ship of state and reflecting on what to do next. Although he did not specifically mention the presidency, he did leave that door open by saying he could have additional announcements about his future plans when it's appropriate. Perry has been governor since 2000, the longest serving governor in Texas history. (TAB Members Only)

FCC flooded with objections to more swearing, nudity on TV
The Hill
Opponents of easing restrictions on cursing and "nonsexual nudity" over public airwaves have flooded the Federal Communications Commission with more than 100,000 public comments. The FCC in April asked for feedback on a plan to focus its enforcement efforts on the most egregious cases of indecency. If adopted, the regulations would be a departure from more aggressive George W. Bush-era policies of penalizing even isolated uses of expletives on broadcast television.
