BY ELIZABETH KOH Texas Tribune By the time Hays Free Press readers get this edition, this spe- cial session of the Texas Legisla- ture will have closed. But with the filibuster that is expected to end at midnight on Tuesday (as of press time), read- ers have asked: "How does a filib- ster work?" With the special session dos- ing at midnight Wednesday, state Sen. Wendy Davis, D-Fort Worth, is engaged in a filibuster attempt to kill abortion legisla- tion she and other Democrats oppose. Delay tactics like the filibuster and "chubbing" often emerge near the end of legislative ses- sions to block the passage or progress of a bill. The filibuster is an extended discussion of a bill by an indi- vidual, and it is permitted only in the Senate. It is distinct from chubbing, which refers to the practice of extending debate on individual bills that can occur in both the House and Senate. During a filibuster, a senator is limited to topics relevant to the bill being discussed and cannot eat, drink or use the restroom during the speech. The rules also prohibit sitting or leaning on a desk or chair under any cir- cumstances when the senator has the floor and is speaking on the bill or resolution. Filibusters end either when the senator voluntarily yields the floor or after three violations of the rules for decorum and debate. After the third violation, the Senate can vote on a point of order, which if sustained would force the senator to yield the floor, according to the Legisla- tive Reference Library of Texas website. The Senate might be able to force a vote on Senate Bill 5, the abortion restriction measure Davis is seeking to kill, if she yields the floor. That means that if she hopes to delay action on SB 5 - for now, anyway - Davis must speak continuously un- til midnight, when the session ends. Filibustering senators are al- lowed to pause to take questions while on the floor. If someone asks Davis a question, it gives her a chance to stop speaking. If Davis succeeds in filibuster- ing past the midnight deadline, she ~ have spoken continu- ously for almost 13 hours. The longest state and national record for a filibuster clocks in at 43 hours, by former Democratic Texas state Sen. Bill Meier. Meier filibustered for almost two days against a provision in Senate Bill 1275, "which would have prevented public inspec- tion of the records of the Indus- trial Accident Board," according to the Legislative Reference Li- brary website. During Meier's filibuster, the rules on eating and drinking were considerably more re- laxed. "I had some light things like some lemon slices," Meier said in an interview earlier this year. "Every now and then I would try to get a little bitty piece of Her- shey bar to stick into my mouth and keep talking. That's about all I had to eat." Lemons were also a coping BY BOB DAEMMRICH, TEXAS TRIBUNE Sen. Wendy Davis gets ready for her filibuster Tuesday, using her trustworthy running shoes. During a filibuster, the senator holding the floor must stand without leaning on the podium or chair and must speak on topic. i Treat You Save Money on DIY Aboveground and Inground Pool Kits &Supplies Financing Available!

Mike McKool. who performed the second-longest filibuster in state history. McK- ool's filibuster set the record at the time for the longest state fili- buster at 42 hours and 33 min- utes. Previous senators who have conducted long filibusters have resorted to special equipment to relieve themselves without leaving the floor. A spokes- man for Davis has declined to say whether or how she was equipped on Tuesday. Davis previously filibustered a bill in 2011, though she only spoke for an hour and 18 min- utes - the Senate delayed her speech to minimize the length of time she spent on the floor. Bottom line: Filibusters re- quire the senator to speak con- tinuously on the floor without food, drink or physical support. They usually occur at the end of a legislative session to delay ac- tion on a bill. electric safety This week, take time to talk to your kids about the dangers of electricity.
