Dan Patrick Delivers Pizza to Texas Senate

Texas Lieutenant Governor Dan Patrick delivered pizza and sodas to the Texas Senate during last night's sunset legislation hearings.

Dan Patrick had joked earlier to the Senate that if they passed the sunset legislation during the first day of the session, that he would bring the "pizza and coke." Sometime after the Senate's unanimous vote around midnight, Patrick made good on his promise.

Patrick dawned an apron and brought a tray of sodas and boxes of pizza to the senators who were in attendance for the session.

There is no word on whether Senator Kel Seliger took part in the pizza festivities after the vote.
