  • This compilation of vetoes is a work in progress. The intent of the Legislative Reference Library is to complete a comprehensive list of vetoes back to the 1st Legislature based on the sources described below. This project is continually updated as new information is found.
  • Form of veto statement. As indicated in the Texas Constitution, Article IV, Section 14, if the governor disapproves a bill after the session has adjourned, notice is required to be in the form of a general proclamation. If however, the governor disapproves a bill while the legislature is in session, the Constitution does not specify the type of statement required. Historically, a variety of statement formats have been used.
  • Sources for information on veto proclamations include: the General and Special Laws of Texas; Veto Proclamations of Governors; House Journals; Senate Journals; Governors' letters, press memos, and other official papers; and Secretary of State Files. Most information is from the collections of the Texas Legislative Reference Library and the Texas State Library and Archives Commission. Some documents from the Archives Commission were too fragile to be scanned. In these instances, there are notes with finding aids for anyone interested in viewing the originals.
  • The "Number of Vetoes" column includes line-item vetoes; In these instances, only specific funding items have been vetoed in appropriations bills.

Information on vetoed bills is unofficial and is provided as a public service by the Texas Legislative Reference Library.
