"State Rep. Debbie Riddle, a Republican, camped out in the lobby of Texas' House of Representatives for two days in early November to make sure she was first in line to prefile a bill for the new session. 'I felt it was important to be first to file because I want my bills to have the lowest possible bill numbers,' Riddle told Houston Community Newspapers. 'That doesn't necessarily mean that they are going to pass, but it helps them get into and out of committee quickly.'" (01/04/11)
