GOVERNOR PRICE DANIEL
REGULAR SESSION, 56TH LEGISLATURE
January 21, 1959
FOR RELEASE ON DELIVERY
TO THE MEMBERS OF THE FIFTY-SIXTH LEGISLATURE:
I appreciate the privilege of delivering this message to you in person
and wish you every success as the elected representatives of the people of our
State. At the outset let me assure you of my cooperation and the cooperation
of the Governor's staff throughout this Session.
Although we are in separate branches of the government, the problems
of the State are of equal concern to us. They can be solved only by our working
and reasoning together. In this spirit, I shall welcome your suggestions at all
Having served six years as a member of the House in which we are
assembled and then four years in the United States Senate, I know and respect the
powers and responsibilites of the Legislature. I appreciate the fact that it is
both our privilege and our duty to work together for the good of Texas and for
the people who entrusted us with their government.
I am pleased to note your determination to complete the work of this session
within the Constitutional 120 days. I believe it can be done and will cooperate to
that end. In any event I do not think members of the Legislature should work without
pay. I said so in publicly supporting the annual salary amendment.
