Michael Schneider, TAB Vice President, Legislative & Regulatory Affairs
One of 24 bills vetoed by Gov. Rick Perry was the Texas Ethics Commission sunset bill, SB 219, by Sen. Joan Huffman, R-Houston.

The "stand by your ad" provision requires federal candidates to acknowledge that they approved the content of their own political ads and who paid for them. (TAB members only.)
