Legislative hearing on local notices sides with newspapers

AUSTIN — Lawmakers were skeptical last Thursday about changing requirements that local governments post notices of meetings, elections, annexations and other such matters in the newspaper. A select committee consisting of Texas senators and representatives met in the Capitol to hear testimony on a perennial issue — whether cash-strapped city councils, school boards, commissioner courts and other local entities should have to pay the local newspaper to get the word out about their business.
