State Rep. White Supports Governor Abbotts' Texas Plan

Austin, TX - State Representative James White applauds Governor Greg Abbott for calling for a convention of states to pass nine new amendments to the U.S. Constitution. Rep. White believes that these measures will limit the powers of the federal government which have tremendously expanded since the ratification of the Constitution.

"I am proud to support the Governor's bold intellectual rigor embodied in the Texas Plan and look forward to working with him in the upcoming legislative session," said Rep. White. He added "The States created the federal government, and thus must control the federal government in order to ensure the most liberty and prosperity."
