Abbott Warns Texas Agencies to Scrutinize New Federal Contracts

“… be vigilant and communicate frequently with my office before you proceed with accepting or applying for federal funding opportunities.”

Recently, Texas Governor Greg Abbott warned all state agencies to scrutinize any funding agreements or contracts to “carefully assess their implications” in preparation for the $1 trillion congressional infrastructure bill possibilities.

“Should the acceptance of any federal funds hinder or needlessly constrain the state, commit the state to ongoing costs for which there is not an appropriation available, or require an agency to implement a federal policy contrary to the law or policy of this state, the agreement proposed by the federal agency should not be signed,” Abbott’s letter reads.

“Please be vigilant and communicate frequently with my office before you proceed with accepting or applying for federal funding opportunities.”

The warning comes on the heels of unanswered questions about the attached strings tied to the federal coronavirus aid, specifically whether recipients must adhere to “all other applicable federal statutes, regulations, and executive orders” from the federal government.

The funding is intended to finance “drinking-water infrastructure, broadband access, transportation, airports, and more.”

  1. There’s much Secret Squirrel stuff going on right now. Texas must be vigilant since Biden wants to take us down. Abbott needs to get his butt in gear and protect the border, worry about the federal lawsuits later, just do what needs to be done. Biden and his AG has no balls, so no worry.
