The Governor said that he will take funds away from Travis County that was granted to them and that amount is around $1.5 million. During the interview the Governor explained what his plan is:

“In addition to that, we have been pushing a piece of legislation in Texas that will pass, that I will be signing into law, that imposes even sterner penalties on counties. It will include things such as defunding them. It will impose fines, and it could impose jail time for the sheriffs to enforce the laws. Oddly enough, the sheriffs could end up behind the very bars they are releasing these criminals from.”
