Office of the Governor Rick Perry

Statement from Gov. Rick Perry on the need for legislators to finish their work:

Monday, May 28, 2007  •  Press Release

“The members of the Texas Legislature have not finished the people’s work.  The events that transpired in the Texas House of Representatives last night have placed in serious jeopardy legislation that has statewide impact. Important legislation addressing our future water needs, border security, clean air, funding for parks and our future energy needs will die unless they are acted upon today. I encourage legislators to rise above their differences and finish the work of the people of Texas.”
