White on White: Governing magazine on Texas cities vs. the legislature

Otis White's Urban Notebook on Governing magazine's web site uses the story about Mayor White's Safe Clear program as a lead-in to discussing Texas as a "home-rule state" and how the state legislature reserves the right to overturn city ordinances (and often does). I have no particular comment, but just like to pass along national media coverage on Houston for those who are interested.

(Their Notebook blog does not have permanent links, so you may have to scroll and page through to find this March 10 story.)
