Gov. Abbott announced that he’ll cut out funding for the Texas legislative branch from the state budget after several Republican-backed priorities failed to become law



Abilene, TX – According to the statement, he posted a tweet on his personal account that read, “I will veto Article 10 of the budget passed by the legislature. Article 10 funds the legislative branch.”

He wrote, “No pay for those who abandon their responsibilities. Stay tuned.”

The social media post came after Senate Bill 7, the controversial GOP-backed election regulations bill, officially died this legislative session.

House Democrats all left the House floor just before 11 p.m. on Sunday, breaking quorum and preventing members from being able to vote on it before the midnight deadline.

State lawmakers began reacting on social media to the governor’s line-item veto threat.
