Second Reading Podcast: Texas attitudes toward the Texas Legislature in the latest UT/Texas Politics Project poll

In the latest Second Reading podcast, Jim Henson and Joshua Blank look at Texans' assessment of the Texas Legislature, the agenda pursued by the legislature during the second special session, and institutional state-of-play as the legislature takes a break before coming back into session for redistricting (and whateever else the governor adds to the agenda).
