TO ALL TO WHOM THESE PRESENTS SHALL COME:
Pursuant to Article IV, Section 14, of the Texas Constitution, I, Rick Perry, Goveinor of
Texas, do hereby disapprove of and veto House Bill No. 32 as passed by the Seventy-
Eighth Texas Legislature, Regular Session, because of the following objections:
House Bill No. 32 would allow inmates to file an unlimited number of
applications for a writ of habeas corpus when complaining about time-
credits on their sentences. That is a waste of time in the trial and appellate
courts of this state. Current law allows a subsequent application when an
innate produces facts that could not have been previously presented.
Since the Legislature by its adjournment has prevented the return of this bill, I anm filing
these objections in the office of the Secretary of State and giving notice thereof y this
public proclamation according to the aforementioned constitutional provision.
IN TESTIMONY WHEREOF, I 4uve
signed my name officially and caused
the Seal of the State to be affixed hereto
at Austin, this 20th day of June, 2003.
