I have to prepare for an essay type of test about the Texas Legislature, and the rubric will be this:

The Texas Legislature

Politics: discuss the politics of law making; the players outside the legislature. 30 pts.

Bicameralism: Describe the bicameral character of the legislature 10 pts.

Leadership: Who are the leaders? Describe their authority and role. 25 pts.

Committees: describe the committee structure and role 25 pts.

Legislative Agencies: List and describe the legislative agencies.

I am including links where you can find all the necessary material to develop each question. It would be helpful if each question would not exceed 3 paragraphs (maybe the first one feel free to write what you feel is necessary).
