Statement of Gov. Rick Perry on the Announced Resignation of Sen. Teel Bivins
"In Sen. Teel Bivins, President Bush has chosen an individual of exceptional statesmanship who has served the State of Texas with distinction and honor for more than a decade. Teel's leadership on education and expertise on public finance has benefited all Texans and will be sorely missed. I thank him for his many years of public service. Anita and I wish Teel and his family well through the senate nominations process, and for continued success in the years ahead."
