Do you think that governors should have significant powers? I know there are about 14 states, Texas being one that their governor has very little power. But why should these governors be allowed more?
In our democracy, it's the states' citizens who determine the extent of the governors' powers. I don't know of any situation in which I would change these policies. However, please check for other answers -- including from our Texas tutors.
I have read and heard for years that the Lt Gov in Texas actually has more power than the Gov does. Here's a webpage that will let you see what his duties are:
I found that by going to www.google.com and entering lt gov tx -- and you can find out this type of information about other elected officials in TX or any other state by altering the search words a little and then reading LOTS!
