There is a reason Governor Abbott was quiet on this issue for so long. It’s because people like Rep. Ken King have been so loud.
Representative King is from Canadian, Texas – a town of 2,200 in a county of 3,200 in the Texas Panhandle. He has an ‘A’ rating from the National Rifle Association and has been endorsed by the Texas Alliance for Life. Among the bills he has sponsored this year is one that would impose “an additional fee for the registration of electric and hybrid vehicles.”
But he represents 19 mostly rural counties, and he doesn’t support a voucher program.
