The closure begins Saturday and continues through Wednesday. In a statement, DPS Director Col. Steve McCraw said that "the Texas Department of Public Safety is...

    One year ago, a wave of Texas counties began declaring that they were “Second Amendment sanctuaries.” Now Governor Greg Abbott has said that he wants the entire state to be a gun rights haven. “I want to make sure that Texas becomes a Second Amendment sanctuary state so that no government official at any level can come and take your gun away from you, despite those people who said, ‘Heck yes, we’re going to take your gun,’” said Abbott during the Texas Public Policy Foundation’s 2021 Policy Orientation. “We’re gonna say, ‘Heck no, you cannot take people’s guns away in...

    Gov. Greg Abbott (R) and his health department announced Thursday that Texas had administered more than one million first doses, making the Lone Star State the national leader in vaccinations against the Chinese coronavirus.

The governor declared in a statement: Texas is leading the way for our nation once again. This is the biggest vaccination effort we have ever undertaken, and it would not be possible without the dedication and tireless efforts of our healthcare workers. We still have a...

This is a good move by the Texas lawmakers before Democrats steal their state like they did the swing states in the 2020 election cycle. “The federal government is out of control and does not represent the values of Texans. That is why I am committing to file legislation this session that will allow a referendum to give Texans a vote for the State of Texas...
