Speaker Mesnard Announces Republican Committee Assignments.

House Speaker-elect J.D. Mesnard has announced the Republican slate of committee assignments for the upcoming legislative session to begin in January.

Mesnard also announced  Representative T.J. Shope as the Speaker Pro-Tempore, a spot which will make him Mesnard's right hand man and de-facto second in command.

A couple of highlights in Menards appointments include Rep. Anthony Kern as chair of the Joint Legislative Audit Committee and Rep. Eddie Farnsworth as chair of the Ethics Committee. Michelle Udall earned a spot as a member of the Education Committee and Phil Lovas was named chairman of the powerful Rules Committee.

Does Texas have a constitutional right to defy Supreme Court on protecting its border?

In a somewhat vindictive move, Mesnard denied Rep. Darin Mitchell a chairmanship even after Mitchell pulled out of the Spekaers race allowing Mesnard to secure it, appointing him instead as a member of the Committee of Commerce.

While Democrat Minority Leader Rebecca Rios is expected to announces the Democrat assignments, the committee assignments for the Republicans are as follows:
