Texas Standard for June 14, 2017
A still developing story out of northern Virginia, where a gunman opened fire on members of Congress and aides. Congressman Steve Scalise, the majority whip from Louisiana, was hit in the early morning attack. An aide to Texas Congressman Roger Williams was also hit. It’s a developing story we’re following this hour. And: Is it foliage versus fascism? How did trees get caught up in Texas politics? We’ll check out the roots. Also: DPS cuts back hours at driver’s license centers across the state. The blowback over long lines forces a 180. We’ll hear from a Houston senator none too amused by the back and forth. Those stories and so much more today on the Texas Standard.
