Statement by THRC Chairman Dustin Burrows on Governor Greg Abbott's State of the State Address

The following statement was released by THRC Chairman Dustin Burrows in response to today’s State of the State address:

“During Governor Greg Abbott’s State of the State address to the Texas Legislature today, the Governor provided strong guidance on what both chambers should prioritize during the 86th Legislative Session. Each of the emergency items set forth by the Governor are issues that citizens across Texas have asked for and want to see addressed by their lawmakers. By the Legislature addressing school finance reform and teacher pay, school safety, mental health care, property tax reform, and natural disaster preparedness and response before this session ends, we will provide meaningful change in the lives of all Texans. Texas House Republicans are ready to take up the Governor’s call and get to work on these priority issues.”
