Four influential Texas state lawmakers have voiced concerns to Gov. Greg Abbott’s office about the Texas Longhorns leaving the Big 12.

According to The Texas Tribune, Rep. Greg Bonnen, R-Friendswood, who chairs the House Appropriations Committee and attended Texas A&M; Rep. Dustin Burrows, R-Lubbock, who received his law degree and MBA from Texas Tech and chairs the House Calendars Committee; Rep. Jeff Leach, R-Plano, who chairs the House Committee on Judiciary and Civil Jurisprudence and was a student body president at Baylor; and Sen. Lois Kolkhorst, chair of the Health and Human Services Committee and a former TCU athlete met with Gov. Greg Abbott’s staff on Thursday.

On Friday, Bonnen, Burrows and Leach’s names were attached to a bill requiring legislative approval of conference realignment.

Leach said the state legislature has an obligation to be involved in Texas potentially leaving the Big 12 for the SEC.
