UPDATE: Banning Sanctuary Cities Signed Into Law

Update: Banning Sanctuary Cities Bill Is Signed Into Law
One of my top legislative priorities – Senate Bill 4 Banning Sanctuary Cities – was signed into law by Governor Greg Abbott today. This legislation, authored by Senator Charles Perry (R – Lubbock), will ensure that no liberal officials in Texas will be allowed to ignore immigration law and we have included substantial fines and penalties for any that do. We have ended this practice once and for all. I discussed the sanctuary cities bill on Fox News last week. Watch my interviews below.
Priority Bill in Support of Israel is Signed Into Law
Another of my top legislative priorities – legislation that will block discriminatory trade practices against Israel – was signed into law last week. This bill, authored by Senator Brandon Creighton, (R-Conroe), prohibits the state of Texas from conducting business with companies involved in the boycott, divestment and sanctions against Israel. This legislation is already making a difference. This week a major Texas bank announced it had closed an account with an anti-Israel group. Texas stands strong with Israel!

Legislative Session – The Final Countdown
The regular session of the Texas Legislature will officially end at the end of this month. I have delivered on my promise to you to push our conservative agenda forward and the Texas Senate has passed 29 of my top 30 priorities. We provide updates on Facebook and Twitter on individual priority bills as the session winds down, so make sure you are following us there.

Thank you for your continued support.

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.
