Since taking office last month, Republican Party of Texas Chairman Allen West has been a vocal critic of the string of unilateral executive orders issued by Gov. Greg Abbott in response to the Chinese coronavirus. Now he’s calling for a special session of the Texas Legislature.
“We are supposed to have taxpayer funds that are apportioned based upon the Legislature and making sure that’s a part of our budget process,” West told Texas Scorecard. “So, yes, we should have a special session because that’s what the people expect; and that how’s you govern, not rule.”
“Orders, dictates, mandates, decrees, and things of that nature … that’s not what we’re about in Texas. That’s not what we’re about in America,” he added.
