Point of Order on Marriage

It appears the House is trying to tie up all loose ends before sine die. Rep. Peggy Hamric (R-Houston) offered a house resolution granting Rep. Mary Denny (R-Aubrey) the ability to use the House floor for her wedding ceremony. The odd thing about this motion is Denny already got married on the House floor... on May 6th.
Hamric offered the resolution to simply make her colleague's use of the floor legitimate.
"In the history of the Texas Legislature, only Ms. Denny has a point of order on
her marriage," said Hamric. "I move that only Ms. Denny can call the point of
order."

The resolution passed on a voice vote with no opposition, just a few chuckles.
