State Rep. Burrows to help in search for new House Parliamentarian

Posted: Updated:
LUBBOCK, Texas -

Lubbock State Representative Dustin Burrows will help scout a new House Parliamentarian. The parliamentarian's primary function is to offer nonpartisan, confidential advice on questions about legislative rules and practice. 

That includes guidance on proper procedures, phrasing of statements and responses to parliamentary inquiries and points of order. 

Burrows joins nine other lawmakers, five Democrats and four other Republicans, to choose who gives that advice.

This working group put together by House Speaker candidate Dennis Bonnen, who emphasizes he wants the House to operate from a place of unity, rather than partisanship.
