AUSTIN Lawmakers will study and investigate best safety practices in Texas jails on a special interim committee, Lt. Gov. Dan Patrick announced on Tuesday.

..

Patricks announcement comes about a month after the Texas Rangers and the FBI announced they would investigate Sandra Blands death and arrest. He said the committee was not about a specific person or case, but acknowledged that jail suicides have been in the news.

..

Senator John Whitmire, D-Houston, who joined Patrick for the announcement at a Tuesday morning press conference, spoke with a more dire tone.

..

There is no question that Ms. Blands tragedy has led us to this point, Whitmire said, noting the Waller County Jail where Bland died was in violation of safety standards. This is not the exception but it is quite often the routine across the state.

..

In this fiscal year, 29 people have died by suicides in Texas jails.

..

I am as serious about this issue as anything Ive ever done, Whitmire told a crowded press conference. Were talking about human lives.

..

Im going to have zero tolerance for suicides or deaths in jails, Whitmire said.
