So reports Mary Alice Robbins of the Texas Lawyer on the Tex Parte blog in this post today. Few details are provided, but the article quotes one of the bill’s sponsor’s (Senator Duncan) saying that the bill just “didn’t have the votes.”

The bill that’s dead is the one that would actually have amended the Labor Code to overrule Entergy going forward, not the bill to limit the Texas Supreme Court’s jurisdiction to decide cases involving statutory construction questions. That bill passed both houses of the Legislature and was sent to the Governor.
