SUMMARY: The Associated Press (AP) and The Texas Tribune have entered into a content-sharing partnership. This collaboration will allow the Tribune to utilize AP's extensive Texas and immigration news coverage, while the AP gains the ability to distribute the Tribune's Texas-focused journalism. AP's U.S. News Director Josh Hoffner highlighted the alliance as a way to enhance news reporting and audience service. The Tribune, a nonprofit newsroom, anticipates that the agreement will amplify their journalism's reach and significantly deepen their collaboration with AP, a key player in America's news ecosystem. Additionally, an invite is extended to attend the Texas Tribune Festival in downtown Austin from September 5-7, 2024.

SUMMARY: A Travis County individual aims to oust progressive DA José Garza, invoking a Texas law that allows for the removal of DAs for not prosecuting crimes like low-level marijuana offenses. When Gov. Abbott signed the law, he stated it was to hold “rogue” DAs accountable, particularly after some, including Garza, wouldn't prosecute abortion cases. The petitioner alleges Garza's misconduct includes charging police indiscriminately and not prosecuting certain crimes. Garza is summoned to court on May 16, with Bell County Attorney Jim Nichols appointed to represent Texas in the case. The law challenges the traditional prosecutorial discretion of district attorneys.
