Governor Greg Abbott today released a statement following Lt. Governor Patrick’s press conference, where he laid out his support for the Governor’s special session agenda.

“I applaud Lt. Governor Patrick and the Texas Senate for their intention to act swiftly and pass all of my special session agenda items,” said Governor Abbott. “My office has been working with lawmakers in both the Senate and House these past six weeks, and if these items do not get passed, it will be for lack of will, not for lack of time.
