#TXLEGE: Attorney General's office contradicts Phil King over Constitutional Carry


"Every one of the builders had his sword girded at his side as he built. And the one who sounded the trumpet was beside me."
Nehemiah 4:18

Phil King seems intent upon being the guy who kills constitutional carry this session.  As part of that effort, he attempted to pass the buck to Ken Paxton.  During his committee hearing last week, a representative from the A.G's office wasn't having it:



Highlights:

  • Receiving at least 100 calls per day, up to 300 some day.
  • Claims "Senior staff member" from A.G.'s told his chief of staff office would lose ability to use LTC system to enforce child support.
  • Staff "deleted over 400 voicemails" the other day.
  • AG office rep testimony begins at 8:50 mark.
  • AG rep: "While it is the default setting of the agency to raise concerns any time a bill draft is in conflict with current law, or current practice...in the case of HB 375 [Stickland's bill] the agency is prepared to forego those concerns and continue to be the nation's #1 child support enforcement agency without that tool in our toolbox."
