Lt. Governor David Dewhurst Statement On Governor Perry's Addition of a Second Special Session
AUSTIN—Today, Lt. Governor David Dewhurst issued the following statement on Gov. Rick Perry's call for a second Special Session:
"I congratulate Gov. Perry for his decision to call a second Special Session to address the issues derailed by the actions of an angry mob in the closing moments of the first. Texas is unlike any other state because our leaders are willing to stand up in the face of pressure from Washington and special interest groups in the pursuit of freedom. I look forward to seeing the members of the Legislature on July 1st as we once again take up our charge to advocate for all of Texas and put the finishing touches on one of the most successful sessions in decades." -- Lt. Governor David Dewhurst
