Friday on The Chad Hasty Show, Patrick Svitek from the Texas Tribune joined the show to talk about forefront issues for the state of Texas.

Svitek and Hasty discussed Governor Abbott's recent trip to the Texas/Mexico border, the issue of the border wall, and why some people believe that it may not need to span the entire length of the border. Svitek said,

You have places like Big Bend National Park, it just doesn't make sense and it may not be practical to have a wall there

Svitek and Hasty also discussed the Pre-K Inititative, which Governor Abbott views to be a priority for the state.
