House and Senate unite on abortion sonogram bill

(Texas Tribune) AUSTIN – Rep. Sid Miller, R-Stephenville, and Sen. Dan Patrick, R-Houston joined forces this morning to ask the House to accept all of the Senate’s amendments to the abortion sonogram bill, virtually ensuring it’s headed to Gov. Rick Perry’s desk.

“This will be one of the strongest sonogram bills in the nation,” said Miller.

If the full House concurs with the Senate version of House Bill 15 — likely, considering this morning’s press conference, abortion sonogram will be the first emergency item to reach Perry for a signature. “I may be inspired to wear my cowboy hat,” Patrick said, referencing Miller, who wears his signature hat around the Capitol.
