Guardianship Bill Vetoed by Governor

A Bill sponsored by Judish Zaffirini-D, Laredo would have created a specialized court to hear and monitor guardianship cases.  The bill along with three others had received almost unanimous support in both the Senate and  the house, and had heavy support by House Republicans.

 

Apparently many believe that the vetoes were retribution by Governor Abbott for Democrats blocking of the Governor's nomination for Secretary of State. David Whitley.

 

We will have to wait two years until the 2021 legislative session to see these changes enacted if the bill is resurrected.
