This past weekend Colleen Horton and I attended the Texas Tribune Festival. The popular Texas-based news source invited an impressive group of speakers to Austin for a two-day gathering in hopes of developing a more informed discourse on issues that are important to the state. Individual presentations and panel discussion were held on four topics – Energy and Environment, Public and Higher Education, Race and Immigration, and Health and Human Services. Naturally, we dedicated most of our time to the HHS presentations.
