Gov. Rick Perry defended Colorado and Washington's legalization of marijuana on Thursday, saying it was an issue of state rights, while touting initiatives in Texas as national models for keeping minor drug offenders out of jail.
Texas Gov. Rick Perry's office administers a pair of special state funds meant to help attract job-creating businesses to the state, but spokeswoman Lucy Nashed said the Republican governor did not distribute any money to close the Motorola Mobility deal.
"We respect the longstanding legal principle of grand jury confidentiality and therefore it would be inappropriate to comment on the proceedings. The veto in question was made in accordance with the veto power afforded to every governor under the Texas Constitution, and we remain ready and willing to assist with this inquiry," Nashed said.
