The top local stories this morning from the KERA Newsroom: The Texas House of Representatives passed their version of a budget after more than 17 hours of debate. Also, Dallas County District Attorney Susan Hawk makes her first public appearance after last week's news of her entering treatment to get off painkillers.
Five stories that have North Texas talking: Susan Hawk talks – but not about recent controversies; the Texas House has a tense debate; the Department of Justice investigates Dallas County for truancy issues; and more.
