Austin, TX (STL.News)Texas business leaders today praised Governor Greg Abbott for his Executive Order that opens Texas to 100 percent:
“Throughout the pandemic, Governor Abbott has implemented measures that protect our communities, while ensuring Texans still have the ability to earn a paycheck and put food on their tables. Once again, the Governor is striking the right balance by removing the heavy hand of government and allowing businesses to operate as they see fit. One year into dealing with COVID-19, organizations understand what protocols they must implement to function safely, and TAB knows Texas companies will operate responsibly,” said Glenn Hamer, CEO of the Texas Association of Business.
“Our members are relieved that the governor has decided that all businesses can operate at full capacity. It’s important that individuals continue to take personal responsibility and follow CDC guidelines to keep healthy and prevent the deadly coronavirus from spreading, but today’s announcement is a step in the right direction toward helping small businesses recover from the economic slump caused by the pandemic and to keep Texans working,” said NFIB State Director Annie Spilman.
“Today’s announcement from the Governor is a welcome one for businesses and employees throughout Texas.
