    Changes in the House

    By Lyndon B. Johnson School of Public Affairs

    Published: Oct. 29, 2010

    Sherri Greenberg is lecturer and interim director of the Center for Politics and Governance at the Lyndon B. Johnson School of Public Affairs. She served for 10 years as a member of the Texas House of Representatives, completing her final term in January 2001. Her expertise includes state and national campaign politics, electronic government, and public finance and budgeting.

    The Texas House of Representatives is facing possible turnovers, some involving Republicans challenging other Republicans, as in the case of the speaker’s race between Speaker Joe Straus and the conservative challenger Warren Chisum.
