Rockwall, April 24 – State Senator Bob Hall, Republican of Rockwall, the holder of the strongest conservative voting record in the Texas Senate during the 86th Legislative Session, called upon Texas Governor Greg Abbott to reopen Texas and to take fourteen (14) specific actions in order to bring an end to the Chinese Coronavirus Depression, which the Texas government and many Texas local governments perpetrated through unconstitutional lockdown orders and business closure orders.
Senator Hall sent a letter to Governor Abbott with fourteen (14) suggested courses of action. The full letter appears at the bottom of this article.
One of the specific courses of action Hall recommended was “Direct all taxing authorities (state and local) to begin reducing spending (not related to fighting the Chinese Corona Virus.”). That recommendation clearly is key to any revival of the Texas economy in order to reduce the tax burden on Texas citizens, as they scramble to recover from the Chinese Coronavirus Depression, which those same taxing authorities caused.
On Friday, April 17, 2020, Governor Abbott held a press conference to announce his plans for reopening Texas. Instead of announcing any such plans, Governor Abbott appointed a commission to advise him on a procedure for reopening Texas, which, of course, will substantially delay any such reopening. Governor Abbott didn’t adopt any of Senator Hall’s suggestions.
