Capitol Alert: Second 'per diem session' of year protects lawmakers' incomes

But at least they actually met, however briefly. Unless things have changed, more often that not they have an early morning "check-in" session which means they drive through the members Capitol garage and have their name checked-off on a roster. That's how it was when I worked legislation in Sacto up until three years ago.

No man's life, liberty, or property is safe while the legislature is in session. - Mark Twain (1866)

And still true. Texas legislature meets every other year? No wonder they do better than us.
