White Papers

  • The Texas Disaster Act—This is What Democracy Looks Like? (2020) - Like many governors, Texas Governor Greg Abbott has responded to the COVID-19 pandemic with a series of executive orders implementing a variety of emergency measures, including requiring face coverings in public places, closing bars and schools, and limiting the capacity of restaurants and other businesses. One feature of these executive orders is that they purport to suspend or modify Texas laws. But can the Governor do that? The Texas Constitution appears to answer this question in the negative.
