Browse the Abbott-O-Meter:

PolitiFact Texas compiled promises that Greg Abbott made during the 2014 campaign and is tracking progress on each one on our Abbott-O-Meter. Many of the collected promises showed up in Abbott's "Bicentennial Blueprint," intially posted online in 2013. That volume, subtitled "Greg Abbott's Policy Plans," describes his desires as recommendations; for the Abbott-O-Meter, we took his recommendations as promises.

On the Abbott-O-Meter, we rate each promise's status as Not Yet Rated, In the Works or Stalled. Once we find action is completed, we rate them Promise Kept, Compromise or Promise Broken. (See the About the Abbott-O-Meter page for more details on our ratings.)

The report card above provides an up-to-the-minute tally of all the promises.
