NFIB Response to Gov. Abbott's Decision to Lift COVID-19 Restrictions

Date: March 02, 2021

NFIB State Director Annie Spilman released the following statement today in response to Gov. Greg Abbott’s decision to lift COVID-19 restrictions on small businesses and other employers:

“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.

“Small businesses, however, are still facing regulatory uncertainty. We believe the Texas Legislature has an opportunity now to protect employers from a patchwork of local rules and regulations that do little besides create confusion and drive up costs.”
