Governor Abbott Vetoes SB 1992

June 15, 2017 | Austin, Texas | Legislative | Legislative - Veto Statement

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. 1992 as passed by the Eighty-Fifth Texas Legislature, Regular Session, because of the following objections: 

Existing law governing the density of subsidized housing in large cities should remain in place, and Travis County should be subject to the same rules as Bexar, Dallas, Harris, and Tarrant counties. 

Since the Eighty-Fifth 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 15th day of June, 2017. 

 

GREG ABBOTT
Governor of Texas
