Tuesday on The Chad Hasty Show, Texas District 83 Representative Dustin Burrows joined Chad in the KFYO studio to talk about the upcoming special legislative session called by Governor Greg Abbot, and some of the issues that have been and will be faced by legislators.

Burrows and Hasty discussed the new texting while driving law, Child Protective Services (CPS) reform, the state budget, SB-2 and property tax reform, and much more.

While talking about the new texting while driving ban recently signed into law by Governor Abbott, Burrows said,

This texting while driving ban, regardless of how you feel about the bill itself, I think most drivers, and I voted for this, it makes sense to have one set of regulations as you drive from city to city, to know what laws you’re under, instead of hundreds of different ones.

During the conversation about state versus local control, Burrows used the example of cities levying fines against someone who has referred to an individual using a pronoun that is ‘unacceptable’ to the other person. Burrows said,

Chad, to me that’s local tyranny. The idea that they’re going to raise revenue off of you and I calling somebody the wrong pronoun? That’s not good for the state of Texas. And we’re not going to let Houston or Austin, or these cities undermine our culture, by coming up with new protected classes and denying science.

Speaking about controversy over the reasoning for, and agenda items on tap for the special session of the legislature, Burrows said,

I’m here today to defend the governor’s call for a special session.
