Gov. Greg Abbott tweeted Monday that he would not sign part of the budget that funds the legislative branch.

The Texas legislature adjourned its 87th session Monday, just hours after House Democrats walked out of the chamber to block the passage of a GOP voting bill.

A veteran Dallas lawmaker did not hold back when he described the session from start to finish.

“It is the worst I have ever participated in,” Sen. Royce West (D-Dallas) said.
