Governor Abbott Vetoes House Bill 3511
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. 3511 as passed by the Eighty-Fourth Texas Legislature, Regular Session, because of the following objections:
Texans deserve accountability and transparency from their public officials. House 8il1 3511 weakens the ethics laws governing officeholder financial disclosures. I cannot allow that.
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.
