Texas Gov. Greg Abbott on Monday said he was making a public list of the lawmakers who disagree with his 20 special session proposals, the Dallas Morning News reports.

"What we have to do is to continue the process of ensuring that we have a majority of members of both the House and Senate in support of these pieces of legislation," Abbott said during a Q&A with the conservative think tank Texas Public Policy Foundation. "I'm going to be establishing a list. You and other organizations may be establishing a list. We all need to establish lists that we publish on a daily basis and call people out — who is for this who is against this, who has not taken a position yet."

"No one gets to hide."

Abbott, who last week formally announced his campaign for re-election in 2018, called a 30-day special session for Tuesday after the legislature didn't pass bills required to keep several state agencies operating.

The governor is looking to reduce property taxes, allow public money to be used for private schooling of special needs students and reform school finance, among other items.
