AUSTIN – Invest Texas Council (ITC) Chairman, Ron Simmons today released a statement applauding Governor Abbott’s announcement lifting COVID-19 restrictions throughout the state.
“Today’s announcement from the Governor is a welcome one for businesses and employees throughout Texas,” said ITC Chairman, Ron Simmons. “Businesses know what it takes to operate safely and do not need the heavy hand of government dictating to them how to function. As other states in the country keep restrictions in place, Texas will spearhead the economic recovery under Governor Abbott’s leadership and with the aid of the Legislature.
“The economic recovery will only increase the number of people and companies moving to the Lone Star State. That is why ITC encourages Texas to enhance its public-private partnerships that have the proven ability to keep pace with population growth through private investment in critical water, power and transportation infrastructure projects, while ensuring taxpayers are protected.”
