In addition to the Emergency Items listed above, Governor Abbott also identified a number of other key legislative priorities elected officials should promptly address during the 87th Legislative Session. Those include:
Protecting our Border
Second Amendment Sanctuary State
While the emergency items outlined by Governor Abbott and the issues he noted above as well are excellent starting points, there will be a cascade of policy issues the Legislature will take up over the next several months. In addition to working to address these items, I will be pursuing solutions to other key issues affecting the Hill Country, South Texas, and West Texas. In the coming weeks, I will be outlining more of the policies I plan to author and others that I will be fully supporting this session. I invite you to reach out to my office anytime to offer your thoughts, advice or support about particular legislation as we move throughout session.
