Governor Greg Abbott said the state of our state is brimming with promise. This was one of the many pronouncements made by the governor on Monday night’s State of the State address. Abbott was referring to Texas. He also took on a number of topics that include the state’s COVID-19 response to fighting back against the defunding of the police departments.
The state of Texas is all about law and order and we are going to continue to stay that way, Abbott said. This is great news! No defunding the police here or making them the enemy of the people!
In addition, Governor Abbott also gave a speech addressing Texans and families who have dealt with the loss during the COVID-19 pandemic.
There is so much hurt from the loss of a loved one. We pray that their families will heal from the hurt of losing a loved one. In fact, we also pray for all the Texans who are still recovering from COVID, he said. Therefore, we are grateful that this week more than two million Texans have recovered from COVID.
Abbott says the COVID-19 pandemic has not lessened Texas success.
In fact, Texan residents are returning to work. Also, students are going back to school. Moreover, families are getting back to their routines, Abbott said. Normalcy is returning to Texas with each progressing day of more vaccinations and increasing immunity.
Addressing the COVID-19 pandemic, Governor Abbott said Texas has worked hard. The state is getting more access to telemedicine, then setting up anti-body therapy treatment centers, and thus helping small businesses.
At the forefront of our agenda are hard-working Texans. This legislative session is building a healthier, safer, freer, and more affluent state, Abbott said.
