Governor Abbott Vetoes SB 1772 (87R)
Pursuant to Article IV, Section 14, of the Texas Constitution, I, Greg Abbott, Governor of Texas, do hereby disapprove of and veto Senate Bill No. 1772 as passed by the Eighty-Seventh Texas Legislature, Regular Session, because of the following objections:
Senate Bill 1772 offered a program that was totally voluntary. Voluntary laws are not needed to drive public behavior.
Since the Eighty-Seventh 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.
IN TESTIMONY WHEREOF, I have signed my name officially and caused the Seal of the State to be affixed hereto at Austin, this 18th day of June, 2021.
Governor of Texas
