Statement by Sen. Davis on the Veto of the Lilly Ledbetter Fair Pay Act

I think Texans everywhere are not just disappointed but shocked that Governor Perry has vetoed bipartisan legislation to make sure that Texans receive equal pay for equal work. Texas families all across our state — whether they are supported by single mothers or by working mothers and fathers — deserve to be paid fairly for the work they do. By vetoing the equal pay for equal work bill, Governor Perry shows a callous disregard for wages required to support Texas families.
