Patrick Releases Video Statement on Alamo Cenotaph
Lt. Governor will urge THC to keep Cenotaph inside the battle walls

HOUSTON TX – Lt. Governor Dan Patrick issued this statement and video today in advance of the Texas Historical Commission meeting next Tuesday regarding the next phase of the Alamo renovation plan, including the placement of the Alamo Cenotaph:

“Over the past several years, the state has provided initial funding of over $100 million for the renovation of the Alamo battlefield site. The goal is to build a world class historic site to honor the memory of the brave men who died there. The third and latest design plan by the Alamo Trust appears to be finally on track to tell their story. However, the relocation of the Alamo Cenotaph outside the battle walls is currently part of that plan. That is not acceptable.

“I will be testifying at the Texas Historical Commission meeting on Tuesday and will express why the Alamo Cenotaph should remain inside the battle walls. I have prepared this short video in advance of the THC meeting. To view, click here.

ICYMI: I released 57 interim charges that reflect issues that Texans have asked us to study. Our 31 senators submitted hundreds of ideas, with many senators sharing similar proposals. My staff and I worked diligently for weeks to review each request, and this is the first set of interim charges I am releasing in preparation for the 89th Legislature. We may release a second shorter list of additional charges before next session.
