Today, the Texas Public Policy applauded the vision of Texas that Gov. Abbott and Lt. Gov. Patrick laid out in their inauguration speeches, reaffirming commitments to parental empowerment and property tax cuts. Those policies and others will benefit Texans everywhere and ensure the state remains a leader on conservative policies around the nation.

“Gov. Abbott is absolutely right that parents deserve the freedom to choose the best education for their children,” said Mandy Drogin, campaign director for TPPF’s Next Generation Texas initiative. “To secure our future, Texas must provide students and their families with the resources and opportunities to pursue the best education possible, and we applaud the Governor’s and Lieutenant Governor’s commitment to improving the lives of all Texans.”
