Results of Hutto resolution in Texas caucuses

From the always-insightful Texas Prison Bidness, here are the current results of the Texas precincts that have passed Hutto resolutions, as of 10 March 2008.

As we mentioned in a previous post, one of the more interesting parts of Tuesday's caucus process is the resolution process, where grassroots Democratic Party members are allowed to introduce resolutions which can eventually be introduced to the state party platform. Resolutions calling for the closure of the T. Don Hutto detention center was introduced in dozens of precincts in at least five counties.

Although official results haven't been released, thus far I've heard that the Hutto resolutions passed in the following precincts:

Travis County - 136, 152, 235, 239, 250, 274, 410, 424, 426, 427, 423, 442, 431, 315, 334, 345

Harris County - 57, 268, 361, 732

Williamson County - 427, 425, 357

Brazoria County - 58

Bexar County - 3024, 3098

I assume there are many more precincts, especially in Travis, Williamson, and Bexar Counties where the resolutions were introduced into the party precinct packets. If you know of a precinct not listed that passed the Hutto resolution, please contact us. I have heard of at least one precinct in Harris County that did not adopt the resolution, but overwhelming I've heard positive reviews from precinct-goers who introduced the resolution.

Again, these are not official results yet. Check out Texas Prison Bidness for the most current numbers.
