PUSHBACK: Gov. Greg Abbott: Should taxpayers fund schools like Texas State? “Gov. Greg Abbott (R-Texas) is weighing in once again on the Texas State University student government’s failed attempt to ban the conservative group Turning Point USA from campus, asking whether taxpayer dollars ‘should still fund schools like this.’ ‘I truly question if taxpayers should still fund schools like this.
