AG Paxton: 5th Circuit’s Ruling Preserves Texas’ Stay of EPA Regional Haze Rule
“We are pleased that the 5th Circuit left its stay in place. The decision gives the new administration the opportunity to reconsider the Obama administration’s unlawful action,” Attorney General Paxton said. “We look forward to the opportunity to work with the new administration on a lawful course of action.”

AG Paxton Statement in Support of Judge Wayne Mack
“Judge Mack is fully complying with the Constitution by adhering to the model for opening prayers the Supreme Court endorsed just a few years ago,” Attorney General Paxton said. “The Freedom from Religion Foundation’s quest to expunge any vestige of religion from public life flies in the face of the Supreme Court’s holdings. I am confident our courts will follow years of precedents and not indulge a litigious group’s plea to rewrite the Constitution.”

AG Paxton Joins 22-State Coalition to Fight Inhumane Treatment of Fetuses
“It is a solemn day when we must fight not for human life, but for the minimum respect owed to human life in an already difficult situation,” Attorney General Paxton said. “Dismemberment methods of abortion are callous, cold and demonstrate a complete lack of respect for human life. In a country where the horror of abortion has already become normalized, if this practice goes unregulated, the balance between women’s reproductive rights and the risk of devaluing human life will be scattered to the wind.”
