AUSTIN – Republican Party of Texas Chairman James Dickey issued the following statement on the Texas Legislature’s conclusion of the special session:

“When this special session was announced, we pledged as a Party to fight for our platform and for the principles and values Republicans in this state hold dear. We have done just that and have seen successes along the way.

“The most significant successes were in legislation regarding protecting unborn children, safeguarding the integrity of mail-in ballots, reforming municipal annexation, and preserving patients’ end-of-life medical decisions. These victories were a great stride forward for Texas, and we would like to thank Governor Greg Abbott and our Republican members of both chambers for advancing these issues.”
