I noticed the other day that there's a new site that has gotten all the Texas Legislature Personal Financial Statements and put them online. That site if TexasWatchdog.org. Also has a pretty nice google map although the markers are a little crowded in some spots-but the alphabetized list of legislators on the left makes it easy to look up yours and see what he has done financially. I'm going to put Kip Averitt on a separate post.
Thought this was a good time to put the business out of the PDF and list it where it can be searched. Readers know that I got the personal financial statement as well as his Ooops, I dang forgot I also was doing business with a lobbyist correction a month or so ago.
So, here's what's in it in case you didn't open the PDF and look.
