Senator Glenn Hegar Says He Was “Amazed” By National Attention To House Bill 2 [AUDIO]


On the Friday edition of The Chad Hasty Show, Texas Senator Glenn Hegar from District 18 talked with guest host Matt Crow about the passage of Texas House Bill 2.

Hegar is one of the co-authors of Texas House Bill 2, which would ban abortions after 5 months of pregnancy. The bill, which was defeated in the first special session of the Texas legislature, was signed into state law by Texas Governor Rick Perry last week. Hegar said he is still amazed at the amount of national attention the bill received, and that it seems the Obama administration is adamant about targeting the state of Texas.

“I firmly believe that in the White House and in the administration, Texas has a big X on it. I feel like we always have an X across our back, and everything that we try to
do, they want to undermine it every single step of the way., which is unbelievable that one administration would say, ‘I have it out for Texas.”

Hegar also discussed the specifics of House Bill 2 and how it would not only ban abortions after five months, but also improve the health care of Texas women.

Hegar is also running for Texas Sate Comptroller and discussed his campaign for primary tax collector for the state of Texas. He said this would be the first time he’s run for statewide office, and it would be a drastic change from his current position, but he added that “the time is right” and that his experience as a state senator would make him a perfect fit for the office.
