Texas Gov. Greg Abbott issued an executive order for all public businesses to close due to coronavirus outbreaks. 

The journey: “During this month 30 years ago I laid in a hospital bed recovering from injuries that broke my back and left me forever unable to walk,” Abbott said. “The journey from that Houston hospital to the Texas Governorship was possible because of two powerful forces.” He said his journey was made possible through the grace of God and through the good fortune of being born in Texas.
”The Land of Opportunity”: Abbott said Texas is the place where the improbable becomes possible. “To this day Texas has been filled with legends who started humbly and succeeded spectacularly,” Abbott said.
“There is still work to be done”: Abbott said some of the areas he intends to focus on include bettering transportation services, water services, education services and care for veterans. “And we must do more for the millions of Texans who are tired of seeing our state sovereignty and the rule of law ignored by a federal government that refuses to secure our border,” Abbott said.
Continuing the fight: Abbott said he would continue his legacy of pushing back against Washington “if they spend too much, regulate too much or violate [Texas] state sovereignty.” Abbott said for too long Washington has tried to remake America in its image.
