Statement by Senator Jane Nelson regarding reports of contracting abuse

AUSTIN, TX — "This session we put agencies on high alert that we were not going to tolerate favoritism or even the appearance of conflicts of interest in our state contracting. It is deeply disappointing to learn that these abuses may have occurred in the midst of that conversation. Clearly we have more work to do when it comes to state contracting."

SENATOR JANE NELSON represents District 12, including portions of Tarrant and Denton Counties. She is Chairman of the Senate Finance Committee and the highest-ranking Republican in the Texas Senate.
