Dose that mean ALLTexans or just those that agree with your political view

We can easily save a tremendous amount of money by ending Abbott's stupid PR stunt of a "wall".

Watch, as "mysteriously" all the agencies that get cut are the ones that actually help people.

does Texas have an actual balanced budget? Revenue covers expenses?

There should be a couple non politician citizens on there.

I’m sure you both have certain agencies already targeted to shutdown, more regressive republican politics.

Most conservative session is not the bragging point you think it is.

Noticeably absent from his priorities: Electricity

Pro-life? Where's the bill funding paid maternity leave? Where's the expansion of access to pre-natal care? Have you given any thought at all to child care?

How about a cost of living increase for retired teachers?

#1 priority - gerrymander the state more than it is now. We know.

Not pro-life. Just pro-control.

More regressive bills no doubt.

I’m getting ready for y’all this time

You forgot: killing Texans
