Let's start here:
I will veto Article 10 of the budget passed by the legislature.— Greg Abbott (@GregAbbott_TX) May 31, 2021
Article 10 funds the legislative branch.
No pay for those who abandon their responsibilities.
Abbott has until June 20 to carry out the veto.
The governor, who is the only official who holds the power to convene a special session, has not yet specified whether he plans to order one ahead of an overtime round already planned for the fall to handle the redrawing of the state’s political maps. An Abbott spokesperson did not respond to a request for comment earlier Monday.
It's a reasonable conjecture. Without it, his name is mud.
I wonder which of their oligarchs will guarantee that the Republicans in the legislature get paid. https://t.co/ds07Vrfqvd— Charles P. Pierce (@CharlesPPierce) May 31, 2021
