Statement on Reopening of the Texas Economy

Date: September 17, 2020

NFIB State Director Annie Spilman released the following statement today in response to Governor Abbott’s plan to allow more businesses to begin opening with restrictions as early as Monday:

“Governor Abbott’s decision to let more businesses reopen at 75% of occupancy is the kind of commonsense response to recent trends that gives our members hope. The decision to reduce capacity or, in some cases, temporarily closing businesses was needed to help reduce the spread of this deadly virus, but it took an enormous toll on employers and their employees.

“Governor Abbott’s decision to ease some of the restrictions will enable businesses to generate much-needed revenue while protecting against the spread of COVID-19, and it could help some businesses avoid having to close for good.”
