Area Mayors to Meet with Governor Abbott

Three area mayors are headed to Austin tomorrow to meet with Governor Greg Abbott.

Amarillo Mayor Ginger Nelson, Lubbock Mayor Dan Pope, and El Paso Mayor Dee Margo will be meeting Governor Greg Abbott tomorrow to discuss special session items. The three mayors signed a letter to Governor Abbott last week calling the special session items "Harmful proposals such as revenue and spending caps, limiting annexation authority and other measures preempting local development ordinances directly harm our ability to plan for future growth."

The three mayors are set to meet with Governor Abbott as part of the governor's meetings with various mayors who signed the letter.
