Will Abbott work the legislature for tax cuts? | Sen. Perry sees the failure of Operation Lone Star – Pratt on Texas 7/14/2022

The news of Texas covered today includes:

Our Lone Star story of the day: Texas Senators, in hearing, speakk truth on the border and Abbott’s ineffective Operation Lone Star. We are paying billions for a program that is having no positive effect at slowing illegal immigration. What happened to Republicans who looked at the results of a program to judge its value as opposed to being like Democrats and only being willing to judge such by the expressed intent?

Our Lone Star story of the day is sponsored by Allied Compliance Services providing the best service in DOT, business and personal drug and alcohol testing since 1995.
