I have waived some regulations to expand health care workforce during the #COVID19  response. This allows Physician Assistants, Medical Physicists, Perfusionists, & Respiratory Care candidates for licensure to more quickly enter the workforce.

Today we announced free childcare for frontline workers during #COVID19  pandemic. Thanks to our nurses, doctors, first responders & all healthcare providers for their tireless work to respond to the #coronavirus . #txlege 

Many small businesses need financial assistance to help them continue business operations. This story has 2 important links that provide help. One is for the Economic Injury Disaster Recovery Program. The other is the Paycheck Protection Program.

You can watch our press conference LIVE today at 2 PM CT right here on my Twitter. Posting a broadcast shortly. Stay tuned. #COVID19 

Tomorrow, Texans must battle more than just the #coronavirus . Severe & dangerous weather will hit large swaths of our state. State resources have been activated to help communities respond to the storm. Stay tuned to the weather & heed local warnings.

This is a solid move --> University of Texas at San Antonio announces prorated refunds to students due to #COVID19 . #coronavirus  #txlege

Today I signed the @ChickfilA ⁩ law in Texas. And, had a great lunch. No business should be discriminated against simply because its owners donate to a church, the Salvation Army, or other religious organization. Texas protects religious liberty.

FYI the matter of 7 year old James Younger is being looked into by the Texas Attorney General’s Office and the Texas Department of Family and Protective Services. #JamesYounger 

God didn’t cause the accident that left me paralyzed, but He did help me persevere over that enormous challenge. I’m a testament that the glory of God is revealed by a young man’s back being broken in half and still rising up to be Governor of Texas. With God all is possible.

Today I issued an Executive Order preventing th @release  of dangerous criminals from prisons & jails. We want to prevent the spread of #COVID19  among prison staff & inmates. But, releasing dangerous criminals in the streets is not the solution. #txlege  #coronavirus

I just deployed 1,000 National Guard Troops to the border. This is needed because more than 45,000 people were apprehended crossing our border illegally in the last 3 weeks. They come from 52 different countries. Congress must do its job and fund border security.
