Austin — There was a time when the Constitution of Texas deliberately undermined the position of governor, for a long time.

In fact, the Constitution came into force for almost a century, before the governor’s term was extended from just two to four years. And when the term is extended in the 1974 election, it will take 24 years for Texas voters to give the governor of either party a four-year term for the second consecutive year.

Governor of Texas Greg Abbott delivered a keynote speech at the Texas Value Policy Forum on September 24, 2021 at the Great Hills Baptist Church in Austin, Texas. As part of his speech, Governor Abbott signed Senate Bill 4 in front of the crowd. Banned "Abortion by mail," Like mail-order medications, it prevents doctors from prescribing abortion medications for women over the 7th week of pregnancy.

Everything changed and was actually morphed. However, the concept of a weak governor dates back to the 1876 State Constitution adopted as Texas, and the rest of the country emerged from reconstruction. Framer at the time wanted everything related to the state government to be weak. As a result, the Legislature meets every other year for a regular session of only 20 weeks.
