Abbott touts school voucher deal with House leaders, but others reluctant to say if bill will pass

A deal between the governor and House would be a breakthrough after months of talks. But whether they actually have a deal is unclear.

Gov. Greg Abbott speaks about the recent 88th Legislative Session to an audience at the Texas Public Policy Foundation offices in Austin, on June 2, 2023. Abbott recounted policy victories in regards to fentanyl and the border crisis, as well as limiting gender affirming care and banning DEI practices in higher education. Abbott ended the event by promising to call a special session for school choice, after the current special session for property tax resolves.
