Texas Governor Releases ‘State of the State’ Report for 2022

"As we have seen in years past, when tested by fire, flood, or hurricane, Texans respond with resilience and calm resolve. Just as we overcame those challenges, we continue to overcome the challenges of the global pandemic. And with neighbors helping neighbors, our communities are rebounding."
This years 'Report to the People' has a summary of the 87th Legislative sessions along with explanations of landmark legislation passed.
