Texas Democrats Respond to SB 12 Press Conference

AUSTIN, Texas–Texas Democratic Party Chair Gilberto Hinojosa issued a statement in response to the press conference on SB 12 held today by Governor Greg Abbott and State Sen. Bryan Hughes:

“Governor Abbott and his allies are attempting to distract from the fact that Texans are dead because of his catastrophic failure in leadership. Instead of holding a press conference honoring Texans who lost their lives and supporting their families, or working with state and local leaders to stop the spread of COVID-19, he is wasting energy and time on social media policies. It’s clear that his priorities are not in line with the most pressing needs of the residents of the great state of Texas.”
