He wants to be a common-sense voice for Texans.

Governor Abbott has scheduled a special session of the legislature to convene on July 8th. It is imperative the legislature pass Election Integrity reform after the conference bill SB7 failed to receive a vote in the House. Changes are required to ensure it is easy to vote, but hard to cheat in TX. The Democrats walked out of the session so there was no quorum, thus no vote. Other priorities that should be passed are gender modification, the protection of our electric grid and, of course, reigning in the powers of a governor in an emergency situation. Contact our TX Rep Reggie Smith or TX Senator Drew Springer with your concerns or requests.
