Sen. Donna Campbell Applauds Governor Abbott for Calling Special Session
to Include Pro-Life Issues, Property Tax Relief, and Annexation Reform

AUSTIN – State Senator Donna Campbell released the following statement after Governor Abbott’s press
conference calling for a special session this afternoon:
“Time ran out on a number of issues critical to Texas families and homeowners this past legislative
session. Fortunately, we have a Governor who listens to the people and has boldly provided a remedy. I
commend Governor Abbott for answering the call of Texas citizens by adding annexation reform,
property tax relief, and pro-life issues to a special legislative session. As I stated after the filibuster of the
Texas Annexation Right-to-Vote Act, this issue is not going away. Guaranteeing Texans a voice in the
annexation process will make our local governments more accountable and limit their appetite to tax,
spend, and expand with no end in sight. We have the votes to end forced annexation in Texas and the
people will ultimately be victorious.”

State Senator Donna Campbell chairs the Veteran Affairs and Border Security Committee and represents
Senate District 25, including parts of Austin and San Antonio
