Secretary Of State To Resign


The Texas Secretary of State is resigning after the Senate took no action on her confirmation. Ruth Reggero Hughs notified Gov. Greg Abbott that she will step down from the office she was appointed to in August 2019.

The state constitution requires a secretary of state appointed between regular legislative sessions to leave office immediately if the Senate goes through an entire session without confirming the appointment. The Senate Nominations Committee won’t comment on why they didn’t consider the nomination.
