"Redistricting and its Consequences: Looking Forward" with James E. "Pete" Laney, House Representative and Former Speaker, and Bill Ratliff, Former Texas Lieutenant Governor and State Senator.The Texas Politics project grew out of a concern that most Texans are uninterested in or, worse, unfamiliar with how their government works. In response the project attempts create new and engaging vehicles for instruction in Texas Politics. The Speaker Series and the Texas Politics website, an on-line instructional textbook, are the two primary ways the project tries to help students and the public become more thoughtful and engaged citizens of Texas. The projecta^?(TM)s website provides a dynamic presentation of the story of Texas politics through original text and innovative multimedia features such as first-person interviews with state legislators, members of the executive branch and activists from across the political spectrum.
