Texas Governor Signs Bills Giving Government Less Power
Article from The Daily Wire by Ashe Schow.
Gov. Greg Abbot (R-TX) had a stellar opening week of June. With few exceptions, the governor lived up to his state’s reputation for defending freedom.
In a series of tweets last week that ended up going viral, Abbott announced that he had signed legislation that would protect free speech rights on college campuses, ban red light cameras, and allow people to have beer delivered to their homes.
On June 1, Abbott tweeted a video of himself signing the red-light camera ban, saying, “I’m about to sign this bill that bans red light cameras in Texas,” before signing the document in front of him.
“Is now law,” he says as he shows the finished, signed bill to the camera.

Good for him! There has been a tendency to abuse those cameras; for example, Beaverton, OR – a Portland suburb, shortened the duration of the yellow in order to force motorists to “run a red light.” If they stop quick enough then they get rear-ended.
Way to go Gov. We’re proud of you.
Governor Abbott has done some good things but I won’t be content until Texas recognizes the 2nd Amendment. He also needs to have the Executive Director of TP&WD review regs and get away from the California model.
