|Governor Greg Abbott Addresses Chamber Audience at Special Luncheon Event
We were thrilled when the Governor's office asked us to arrange a lunch event with the NSAC Board of Directors and their guests. Governor Abbott spoke to a group of about 100, sharing remarks from his State-of-the-State address. The Governor spoke of the importance of addressing school finance reform, to include pay teacher raises, and property tax refrom during the 86th Legislative Session now underway. He also expressed his support for bills in the House and Senate that would prohibit cities from passing or enforcing any order, ordinance, rule, regulation or policy relating to any form of employment leave, hiring practices, employment benefits, scheduling practices, or other terms of employment.
