Governor Abbott Vetoes House Bill 2100
Governor's Initiatives »
Pursuant to Article IV, Section 14, of the Texas Constitution, I, Greg Abbott, Governor of Texas, do hereby disapprove of and veto House Bill No. 2100 as passed by the Eighty-Fourth Texas Legislature, Regular Session, because of the following objections:
Determining the boundaries of new taxing districts should be a fair and transparent process. The boundaries of the management district created by House Bill 2100 received particular attention during legislative deliberations. In particular, questions were raised regarding the exclusion of certain large parcels from the district.
Since the Eighty-Fourth Texas Legislature, Regular Session, by its adjournment has prevented the return of this bill, I am filing these objections in the office of the Secretary of State and giving notice thereof by this public proclamation according to the aforementioned constitutional provision.
