Richardson (House 1970-1992, 23rd district; Democrat) recalls his family's mercantile business, the one-room schoolhouse he attended, his early political influences, and his reasons for choosing a political affiliation different from his family's. He discusses changes in both political party platforms, legislation for no-fault divorce and probate of estates, the committee system, his role as Majority Floor Leader (1976-1982) and Speaker of the House (1982-1985) in advancing legislative independence, education reform, and the role of lobbyists.
