Rep. Scott: ‘I brought beef jerky, I’ll go for days’

When Rep. Heather Scott, R-Blanchard, asked to ask another question of someone testifying – she’s had many today – Chairwoman Patti Anne Lodge, R-Huston, noted the hour – long into the noon hour – and said, “They’re going to just give us bread and water here if we keep asking all these questions.” Scott said, “Hey, I brought beef jerky, I’ll go for days.” Amid laughter, Lodge responded, “You’d better pass it out.”
