Attorney General Paxton Statement on Passage of Pastor Protection Bill
"Across our nation, religious values have come under assault, and today’s bipartisan action in the Texas House is a clear step forward in the ongoing effort to preserve our first freedom: religious liberty. This overwhelming vote shows undisputable support for protecting our faith leaders and standing up against government’s attempts to force Texans to act against their sincerely held beliefs. I commend Sen. Craig Estes and Rep. Scott Sanford for championing this legislation, as well as the pastors who have shared testimony and the lawmakers who fought for the core values of our state and citizens."

Attorney General Paxton Calls for Increased Oversight of Obama Administration in Executive Amnesty Case

In today’s filing with the federal district court, the states argued for increased oversight of the administration's compliance with the court's injunction, and for the opportunity to look into whether the defendants should be sanctioned for their misrepresentations to the court.
