San Antonians will vote on largest bond package in history
On May 6, San Antonio voters will decide on six separate bond packages totaling a record $850 million. Of that, nearly $187 million will go to parks, recreation and open space. One part, a controversial land bridge for Hardberger Park, has become an issue in the mayor’s race.
Executive vice president of San Antonio’s chapter of Associated General Contractors, Doug McMurry, and conservative former councilman and now a political consultant, Carlton Soules, join Rick Casey to discuss the topic.
Ross Ramsey, executive editor of the Texas Tribune, discusses House Speaker Joe Straus' potty talk, and how the bathroom bill can possibly hurt tourism.
Casey closes out the show with his Last Word, where he talks about how: "The Texas Legislature is on the verge of doing something extraordinary to bring about rationality to our system of dealing with persons accused of non-violent and minor crimes as they await for trial."
