The Governor has called on the Legislature to convene during the summer to further clarify enforcement so that the entire state is subject to a single statute concerning the use of hand-held devices.

Other issues include a number of education bills that didn't make it through the regular session.

In addition to the Anti-BDS bill (HB 89), Governor Abbott has also signed Senate Bills 252 and 253, which strengthen Texas' laws to prohibit state agencies from contracting with or investing in companies that do business with Iran, or designated foreign terrorist organizations.

"The lieutenant governor called us at 9 p.m. and asked us to make sure we didn't get to the sunset bill", state Rep. Kyle Biedermann, R-Frederickburg, wrote in a text to a constituent, according to The Dallas Morning News.

Unfortunately, it was used as political fodder. While abortions are technically legal up to 20 weeks in Texas, the new legislation effectively means that women in the state will only be able to legally obtain abortions using the abortion pill, which is only effective during the first 10 weeks of pregnancy.

Both Senate bills were authored by Senator Van Taylor. But Patrick qualifies that by saying he and Abbott are "in sync" on issues, without saying what he will do if Abbott, a career lawyer and judge, strays out of "sync".


After that, the Republican-dominated legislature passed a bill that included the regulation on fetal tissue disposal, with many party leaders saying the measure was necessary to preserve human dignity.

The Texas Legislature will reconvene July 18 for 30 days.

The special session proposal changing laws related to property tax rollback elections.

But by laying out a long assignment list, Abbott has gained political coverage for 2018.

Gov. Abbott said, "if I am going to call a special session, I intend to make it count", but did not address pleas from Second Amendment advocates to add constitutional carry to his agenda this week. They need to come to Austin with their work hat on...

If they don't - they just didn't listen to Abbott.
