Office of the Texas Governor | Greg Abbott | Press Release

Governor Greg Abbott today held a roundtable at Pieper-Houston Electric to discuss Texas’ strong business climate and its continuing rapid growth. Representative Lacey Hull, Annie Spilman of the National Federation of Independent Business Texas, and leadership from Pieper-Houston Electric joined the Governor’s roundtable.

"People often ask how we get so many companies to move to Texas and how we have kept our economy growing year after year—but the answer is simple: we partner with our business community and provide them with the resources and support they need to thrive,” said Governor Abbott. "It is because of companies like Pieper-Houston Electric and its employees that the state’s economy continues to grow and expand, building a more prosperous future for every Texan. Our business owners, entrepreneurs, and workforce are who make Texas exceptional, because when they succeed, Texas succeeds.”

During the event, Governor Abbott talked about the crucial importance of small businesses in the Texas economy and discussed how during the recent legislative sessions, Texas took action to make the state's business climate even better.
