Supreme Court rules in favor of GOP Texas gov’s state legislature funding veto

The Texas Supreme Court ruled on Monday against a request from state Democrats to overturn Republican Gov. Greg Abbott’s veto of the state legislature’s funding.

Texas Democrats argued Abbott’s veto was unconstitutional and violated the separation of the powers of government. Abbott vetoed the funding after nearly 60 Democrats fled the state for Washington, D.C., to avoid a vote on an election reform bill.

Abbott tweeted, “The Texas Supreme Court denied Democrats’ request to overturn my veto of the Legislature’s funding because the Democrats walked out on doing their job.

“Contrary to Democrats & pundits, my veto was legal.”

“These public statements and events make it clear that the subject of the petition for writ of mandamus — the lack of Article X funding for the Legislature — continues to exist not because of a dispute between the Governor and the Legislature, nor even because of one between the Governor and a minority of House members. Rather, the principal dispute is among the members of the Legislature,” the ruling said.

“Neither the Legislature’s leadership nor any of its Republican members have joined in [Democrats’] complaint that the Governor is violating the separation of powers,” it added.

The governor has also continued to extend special sessions to encourage the fleeing Texas Democrats to return. He has also argued the lawmakers could be arrested upon return to the state for violating state law by leaving to avoid a vote.
