In our business, we hear all kinds of insider information that eventually turns into policy and legislation. Here, we've compiled everything we see in the press and hear from inside sources surrounding COVID recovery for a one-stop look at the major issues that could come up this legislative session.
Countdown to the 87th Texas Legislative Session
The first stop is the Governor’s Strike Force Report and Recommendations:
This report outlines the requirements and recommendations for businesses and customers as businesses begin to open up around the state at either 25% or 50% capacity. The checklists in this report are no longer up-to-date, so you will need to visit the governor’s website for updated checklists. https://gov.texas.gov/organization/opentexas
The Lieutenant Governor also set up a separate task force called the Texans Back to Work Taskforce which recently published its 114-page report. https://www.ltgov.state.tx.us/wp-content/uploads/2020/taskforce/Texans-Back-to-Work-Task-Force-Report.pdf
