Governor Abbott Statement On Securing Republican Majority In Texas House

AUSTIN – Governor Greg Abbott today released the following statement after Republicans retained a majority in the Texas House of Representatives:

Congratulations to all the Republicans who secured a victory to the Texas House and thank you to Texas voters for keeping the Texas House red this election,” said Governor Abbott. “Over the past several years, the Republican-majority legislature has helped usher in historic accomplishments from teacher pay raises and school finance reform to reining in property taxes and fostering greater economic prosperity. Texans have sent a clear message that they want their elected officials to build on these accomplishments and put our state on a path to an even stronger future. I look forward to working with the legislature this session to support our law enforcement officers, rein in taxes and regulations, and bring more jobs to the Lone Star State.”
