They are calling on Governor Abbott and Lt. Governor Patrick to find real solutions to the challenges facing Texas in this special session. As we head into the special session next week, Governor Greg Abbott is expected to make local control a primary issue.

"The transition from a state to federal status, in terms of funding, will not impact the mission of the Texas National Guard or its role in protecting and serving the citizens of Texas", he said. The Fort Worth Chamber of Commerce has seen the benefits and wants to keep it that way.

Combs, who owns and operates a ranch in Brewster County, served as Texas comptroller from 2007 to 2015, commissioner of the Texas Department of Agriculture from 1999 to 2007, and as a state representative, 1993 to 1996. He says about 100 service members remain on the mission. He refused to endorse the bathroom bill for months, then backed only the softened House version.

And state Rep. Shawn Thierry, D-Houston, said the legislation she filed to address high rates of maternal mortality in Texas should be somewhere "we can all find common ground". "They serve many, many functions, many ecological and many of them have to do with human comfort too".
