    So if he doesn't sign it by the 20th of June it becomes law anyhow? Maybe he won't sign for political cover?

    Would “No shoes, No Shirt, No Service.” Signs still be OK if I self identified as a cave man? :)

    He's indicated he will sign it.
    There are a number of really good bills piled up on his desk, and they each require time to deal with.
    There's about zero opposition (other than the usual suspects) to the bill, so there's no political gain in not signing it.
    We are just impatient.
    It's also the nature of the way Texas has only one Session every two years. These things happen in great big batches. There's a rush at the end. And service workers in Austin get tips for a change for the next 16-18 months.

    Now, there's some chatter about the "deholster" Bill (which removed the "shoulder/belt holster" requirement from OC) which HB 1927 also does, and whether that one needs some other attention by the Governor.

    It still requires a holster, but I like that you can carry it anyway you like.

    Hmm, "Has a holster?" Yes. Then legit for open carry unless a 30.05 or 30.07 sign is present.
    At least, after 1 September 2021.
    Until then it has to be a shoulder or belt holster.
