City of Glen Rose Resolution re: Local Control vs Greg Abbott at the Texas level

I was at the City of Glen Rose Town Council meeting on 3/27/2017 where a resolution regarding local control came up. This was in response to the Texas Legislature and Greg Abbott seeking to take local control away from cities, etc over regulations. 

ValleyCentral.com

CORPUS CHRISTI — As local control battles rage at the Texas Capitol, Gov. Greg Abbott is voicing support for a much more sweeping approach to the issues that have captured headlines.

"As opposed to the state having to take multiple rifle-shot approaches at overriding local regulations, I think a broad-based law by the state of Texas that says across the board, the state is going to preempt local regulations, is a superior approach," Abbott said Tuesday during a Q-and-A session hosted by the Texas Conservative Coalition Research Institute, an Austin-based think tank.

Such an approach, Abbott added, "makes it more simple, more elegant, but more importantly, provides greater advance notice to businesses and to individuals that you’re going to have the certainty to run your lives."

 Although the article writer couldn't be sure which legislation was being referred to, it may have been HB153. 

What's amusing to me is that the Republicans have been, for years, decrying federal control ovre the states, and "states rights" has been the rallying cry. But now, the State of Texas apparently wants to be the forceful one to tell local entities what to do. Some hypocrisy on that point. 

The City of Glen Rose also does not like this action, discussion centered more around taxes and rollback, at the March 13, 2017 meeting.
