"To vote freely. What is it. He doesn't like about the proposals. in texas. in texas. for example republican led state legislature wants to allow partisan poll-watchers to intimidate voters in imperil impartial. Toll workers they want voters to dive further and be able to be in a position where they wonder who watching them and intimidated to wait longer to vote to drive a hell of a lot. Excuse me a long way to get to vote. They wanna make it so hard convenient that they hope people don't vote at all. That's what this is about governor. Abbott says biden isn't telling the truth the fact is that texas is passing a law that expands not reduces the hours of early voting. That's more than many states including president biden's home state of delaware which has zero hours of early voting. The texas law also helps to prevent mail in ballot fraud in texas that is an issue that both republicans and democrats agree on it will uphold the integrity of our elections and ensure that texans who do qualify to vote by mail will have the ability to do so president biden and the democrats must stop the misinformation. Texas is very simply making it. Easier to vote and harder to cheat. Abbas also said that he will call legislators back into special session after special session after special session until elections. Bill is finally passed at some point this year. In fact abbott said special sessions could last all the way until next year all the way up until the next election which will be really productive for those campaigns of those legislators. They try to hold onto their seats. Abbott says democrats are gonna be arrested when they returned to texas a lot of tough talk from abbott. He also told the texas standard and toast david brown and texas public radio that the special session isn't only about elections law changes. A lot of people are unaware that there are a lot of them's on the current special session to deal with far more than just election. Integrity one involves bell reform. And as senator joan huffman put it yesterday. the the refusal of the democrats to show up the capital and address things like bail. Reform is deadly because our regular session ended All the way through yesterday Stood up and said that five people have been released from jail under the current bail policies and killed somebody. There are dead people today because the democrats have refused to step up and Reform our broken bail system that is very dangerous criminals back out on the streets so the democrats have blood on their hands. Were failing to step up and do their job. We don't know how many texans may lose their lives until the democrats finally returned to the capital and step up and pass bell reform policies instead of texas that do not let dangerous criminals back out onto the streets. But that doesn't sound like a scare tactic at all nor does telling democratic legislators they'll be arrested if and when they come back to texas wait strike that reverse it. It does sound like scare tactic. So what democrats think about that. Democratic state representative jasmine. Crockett is a freshman from dallas county. She's among the members who are here in dc with other members of her party and she says she's not afraid of whatever it's talking about. I mean i don't worry probably because i know the law and the governor knows the law as well. I'm a criminal defense attorney. And so i understand that i've not committed a crime so i can't get arrested. The most that could happen is. I could be detained. And it's not. The governor that gives to make that decision is the speaker of the house. The speaker of the house was elected by both democrats and republicans. He's the one that has to make that an issue The governor can do special session after special session..

"Insurance company. I just crashed into a car did have some great damage. You got that covered. I'm sorry. We didn't say that. We were covering your school. Right. They may not I don't know do some of you do know you work in the business you work for auto insurance companies or you sell policies. Do current auto insurance policies in Texas cover you if you're operating one of these electric scooters, and you get in a wreck five one two eight three six zero five ninety have had they had the state senators missed a very important area that needs to be added to any new law that they're contemplating or would that just be unnecessarily complicating the situation which already has so many question marks? Well, I think it would be nice to have it spelled out because I think there's are there are we've heard stories of people that have had encounters of almost being hit or being hit. And the scooter riders just going on about their business not stopping or in there's damage to the car, then they're stuck with that. It would be nice to have it spelled out state. Senator Bryan Hughes voted against this Bill because he says I think it's wrong to force them off the sidewalks it safer on the sidewalks than it is out in the streets for who just the scooter riders not for any of the people that are using the sidewalk to walk. Another state. Senator Joan Huffman of Houston said what about my personal liberty my safety when I'm on the sidewalk, it's a sidewalk underscore the word walk. It's not for scooters or I get in here. Join us at five one two eight three six zero five ninety well as in north Austin ten seventeen how you doing this morning will. Hey, guys. I'm great. My question is how if he's lost past. How will people know? I mean, we're not going to scooter driving academy. And how will I know not to on the sidewalk when I come in. I mean, how does that work get out? That's a very good question signs of the scooter and a big circle in a Mark through boy was ten new laws listed on them. Yes. And you're going to read them all I'm sure know because you can go and find one that's just on the ground somewhere and swipe and go you don't have to go to the scooter shop and read all the rules and sign a form before you take off. I just don't see how they enforce it. Unless unless it's become something that people know across the board. We always hear the police say ignorance of the law is no excuse. Rent one of these you say you have to swipe they made us put up. Here's all the law. Do you agree check the box. And then you then then you're allowed to go will is it necessary for the state lawmakers to to add these questions about financial responsibility. If there is a record injury involved. I would assume so, but I once again, I don't know like y'all said if they don't have auto insurance, how do you how do you do it? I don't know. It's such new territory. I think everybody's kind of grasping for answers right now. You have a good day. Thank you very much five one eight three six zero five ninety. I believe this now goes to the house for action, the sponsor in the Senate, Royce, west of Dallas says that under this Senate, Bill, cities and counties could add on more regulations, if they so choose the state is just setting some of these minimum standards right now because he says this is like the wild west in terms of these scooters right now it is nutty out there. But with the city, adding on convey seems to me the state would be the one that would say that about the liability and not so much the city. I would think so yes, the state is not requiring helmets Royce west says if cities want to require helmets. They can do that. It again, there's just there's too many questions this came out of nowhere and just took off. And then we're just left struggling to figure it all out after the fact Frank is on par lane with Marc and Melinda. How are you today? Frank good morning. More me. I'm just doing fine. As a follow up to the fella who is wondering how you let people know about any new laws. These things all have to be turned on through an application on your phone. So we put the onus on enforcing it with the owner of any badgers. The runners whatever you wanna call it. The guys that were manage scooters before you can drive the thing you have to read ending knowledge. Hey.

"Off at this hour Nagin Bishop NewsRadio twelve hundred w freeze warning in effect for another couple of hours till eleven o'clock, then cloudy skies and a high this afternoon. Fifty degrees. As you probably know their places in Texas. Twenty one to buy tobacco, but not everywhere in a state. But that could soon be changing Charlie recall last year, San Antonio city council passed an ordinance banning the sale of tobacco products, including cigarettes to anybody under the age of twenty one. And the biggest argument you heard from convenience store. Operators was hey, they could just go across the city limits. Go into a suburb go into the county by all the spokes they want. Well, they wouldn't be able to under a law. That's being discussed today by the state house public health committee. It would take the Senate Tony ordinance called tobacco Twenty-one and make it state-wide. You would not be able to buy tobacco products, including vaping products, anywhere in the state. If you are not twenty one years old officials cite the fact that after gradual but steady declines and teen smoking over the last twenty years, it has turned around and began to jump back up. Again, we now. I'll see about seven point four percent of high school students smoking tobacco more than ten percent using e cigarettes and the focus of this law is that unlike hard drugs like heroin and buy from street dealers, the vast majority of teenagers get their cigarettes from their older buddies most everybody who's a sophomore junior in high school knows the senior who's eighteen who can go out and buy smokes. Sometimes the ten year old even makes money off the transaction. And nobody starts smoking over the age of twenty one. I mean by then you're smart enough, not to start smoking. They say ninety seven percent of people who develop a smoking habit develop it under the age of twenty one in the vast majority of the most common age to take up smoking is fifteen fifteen chances are pretty good. You know, somebody who's eighteen can buy spokes. If you're fifteen chances are not so great, the, you know, somebody who's twenty one who's going to be able to buy your smokes. And that's the whole idea behind this. The supporters of this. Including state Senator Joan Huffman introduced a Bill in response to what they call the alarming increase in the use of tobacco especially e cigarettes among Texas teenagers now that use of tobacco hasn't gotten nearly up to the levels. It was at in the sixties and seventies. Among my high school kids, but it is concerning that is turning its way upward again tobacco is far and away the the number one preventable cause of cancer. And you know, how much money we spend on just cancer alone, not to mention emphysema heart disease. The other things you get from taking up smoking. So seven states now have already banned the sale of tobacco products and vaping products to people under the age of twenty one. And this Bill has got a pretty good chance of passing largely due to the fact that it's been tried for the past year here in San Antonio jam. Thank you, very much.
