Abbott Continues Fight to Oppose The Defunding of Police

HOUSTON, TX – Gov. Greg Abbott is continuing his fight to halt efforts to defund the police department.

On Wednesday, the governor spoke at the Houston Police Officers’ Union, where he was joined by Senator John Cornyn, Texas Lt. Gov. Dan Patrick, Texas House Speaker Dennis Bonnen, and several others.

Abbott’s argument was that deducting from police budgets would endanger both the police and public safety.

Of the future, he says he hopes to propose measures in next year’s legislative session to defund Texas cities that choose to defund their police forces, along with other proposals.
