UT Arlington In The News - Friday, November 9, 2012
Texas has sued the federal government 23 times since President Obama was first elected and the public shouldn’t expect that tension to ease now, a report on KERA/90.1 FM said. UT Arlington political science professor Victoria Farrar-Myers said Texas’ Republican leadership often rebels against new rules and stricter enforcement. “Given the kind of state we are in wanting to see less federal control and more state control, I think you are going to continue to see more tension over the next four years,” she predicts.
