Opening Ceremonies of the 2013 Texas Legislature (Photos)

The 83rd Texas Legislature kicked off its very first day in session Tuesday with legislators being sworn in surrounded by family, friends, and supporters. State Rep. David Simpson withdrew his candidacy for Speaker of the House, and soon after, State Rep. Joe Straus was reelected unanimously. Among the list of priorities slated for this Legislature are infrastructure, water, jobs, state budget, and education.
