As Lieutenant Governor it was everything I wanted to hear
He pinpointed the issues that both of us presented to the voters of Texas over the last 18 months said Lt. Governor Dan Patrick
immediately following Governor Greg Abbotts State of the State Address
Governor Abbott put a powerful spotlight on
issues that are very important to Texas and to the Texas House said House Leader Joe Straus
We look forward to working further with Gov. Abbott and the Senate
on behalf of the citizens of Texas.
Texans overwhelmingly support:
- Additional Border Security
- Property Tax & Business Tax Relief
- Transportation Funding
- Education Reform & School Choice
Regarding his emergency items the Senate is already moving
forward on a number of issues including:
- Border Security
- Transportation and
- Ethics Reform
It is clear that Governor Abbott
and I stand shoulder to shoulder on these ideas and I look forward to working with him and Speaker Joe Straus
in passing the peoples agenda.
Im confident that the House is going to address those priorities in a meaningful way said Texas House Speaker Joe Straus
(R-San Antonio) following Abbotts address.
The House will carefully consider the details of these proposals as we continue to develop a sound disciplined state budget."
