Abbott Must Call a Special Session

Vitally important, yet unfinished business in Austin compels the Texas Freedom Caucus to call upon Governor Abbott to call a special session of the Legislature to address at least three critical issues not passed in the regular session:

  • Property tax reform that includes a credible rollback election provision,
  • Privacy protections for women and girls in changing rooms, showers, and restrooms in public schools as well as other public settings. Also a law that protects private businesses if they choose not to allow men into women’s changing rooms and bathrooms, and
  • Agency sunset reviews, including the Texas Medical Board.

Governor Abbott should also consider matters related to ethics reform, public school finance, and school choice in a special session.

It is time to finish the business we were elected to complete.
