Points of Order


Texas Legislative Law Handbook

These charts show the frequency with which each rule was cited in a point of order. The top six rules are listed below the graph. The charts do not include constitutional provisions, which are often called in conjunction with a particular rule. They also don't show the success rate of each rule. However, those details, along with descriptions of each of the holdings, are in the Texas Legislative Law Handbook.
