AUSTIN, Texas — Gov. Greg Abbott has vetoed the legislature's $400 million section of the budget, leaving 2,000 Texas legislative staffers caught in the middle.
This action came after Democrats walked out of a special legislative session in May, blocking the Republican's plan to change voting practices across the state.
If nothing happens, legislative staffers will stop receiving a paycheck on Sept. 1.
There is currently a lawsuit pending before the Texas Supreme Court.
