The third called session of the Texas Legislature ended with lawmakers addressing most of Gov. Greg Abbott’s concerns.

With the exception of a ban on vaccine mandates, increased penalties for illegal voting and a constitutional amendment allowing courts to deny bail to defendants charged with certain types of crime, the Legislature adjourned in the early morning hours of Oct. 19 after considering Abbott’s priority agenda items.

Although the Legislature did not make headway with HB 51, which would ban any entity in Texas from requiring a vaccine

mandate, Abbott’s executive order banning requirements remains in effect.
