Texas Border Business
AUSTIN – NFIB State Director Annie Spilman released the following statement in response to Gov. Greg Abbott’s State of the State Address:
“Governor Abbott understands the challenges facing the state’s small businesses in these difficult times. Our members are especially relieved by the governor’s support for COVID-19 liability protections for small businesses. Bad actors should be held accountable, but businesses that follow the government’s safety guideless to protect their customers and employees from the coronavirus should be protected from predatory trial lawyers trying to profit from the pandemic. We’re also encouraged by the governor’s support for easing the regulatory burdens on small businesses.”
“Small business is the engine that drives this state’s economy. We look forward to working with the governor and legislative leaders on solutions that not only enable our members to survive this pandemic but to grow and create jobs.”
