the summit in San Angelo, there must have been at least about 30 Texas
House members – from both political parties – and as Chairman Drew Darby mentioned in his welcome
message: “These are Texans who want to solve problems.”
the breakfast event alone, moderated by Rep. Darby, the panelists included Trent Ashby, Andrew Murr, Jose Rodriguez, Gary VanDeaver, Paul

featured throughout the day.
out that at least one of the lobbyists on hand for that event is making a move
