On this week’s edition of Talk Business & Politics:
A breakthrough at the state capitol on taxes. The governor announces a plan that will likely get other big items moving in the legislative session. Senate Republican Majority Leader Bart Hester is our guest.
A Democratic newcomer makes a splash. Rep. Nicole Clowney introduces legislation to help firefighters. Equally important, how is this legislative freshman finding the first weeks of the session?
And for insight on the two new leaders of the legislature - Senate President Jim Hendren and Speaker of the House Matthew Shepherd - columnist John Brummett discusses his new profile of the men.
