AUSTIN, TX — Texas lawmakers only meet every other year for 140 days, and two heavily watched pieces of legislation were not brought to a vote in the House before a midnight deadline Friday, effectively killing the bills until the next regular legislative session begins in January 2019.
The language of the two bills — House Bill 81, which would decriminalize marijuana possession, and House Bill 2107, which would fix the state’s ineffective medical marijuana law — could still be attached to any bills still alive in the legislature in the form of amendments.
