The chair, as expected, is Sen. Steve Ogden, R-Bryan, who has headed the upper chamber’s budget-writing panel for the past several sessions. He said budget hearings would likely begin next Monday. Vice chair: Sen. Juan “Chuy” Hinojosa, D-McAllen.
Members: Sens. Bob Deuell, R-Greenville; Robert Duncan, R-Lubbock; Kevin Eltife, R-Tyler; Craig Estes, R-Wichita Falls; Eddie Lucio Jr., D-Brownsville; Jane Nelson, R-Flower Mound; Dan Patrick, R-Houston; Kel Seliger, R-Amarillo; Florence Shapiro, R-Plano; Royce West, D-Dallas; John Whitmire, D-Houston; Tommy Williams, R-The Woodlands; and Judith Zaffirini, D-Laredo.
