I am so sorry it has taken so long to get these up! Here are some pictures taken from day three of Patriot Academy in Texas 2013.
So, this is the beautiful capitol of the Texas. And of course, being all cliche for Texas, it is the tallest state capitol building in the United States. It even beats our national capitol building by seven feet!
Typically, the Texas state legislature is out of session during Patriot Academy, but this year they were entering into their third special session while we were at PA! They were kind enough to recess until the following Monday, but they had a little bit of official emergency business to take care of on Wednesday, and they did it while all of us were on the house floor in the state representative's seats! I don't know how they allowed this, but it was awesome!
Then, after finishing their official business, the actual state reps. simulated some debate for us, to show us how it was done!
