Texas: Governor Abbott Spotlights Economic Growth Agenda In Fort Worth

~ At a luncheon hosted by the Fort Worth Chamber of Commerce (FWC), Governor Greg Abbott outlined his priorities for the 88th Legislative Session to maintain Texas' position as America's number one economic destination. Over 200 business and community leaders were in attendance, and the Governor praised Texas' successful business friendly policies and congratulated the FWC for their work to broaden educational opportunities in the area, including their role in expanding Texas A&M University's presence in downtown Fort Worth.

"Texas A&M's expansion in Fort Worth is a testament—in part—to the ingenuity and determination of people in this room," said Governor Abbott. "This new campus will redefine downtown Forth Worth by bringing more research and development opportunities, new businesses and investment, and an abundant workforce to the area. Fort Worth is a big part of the Texas economic juggernaut, and its success has been aided by strategic economic development tools—and to keep Texas the best state for business, our local communities need new economic development tools this session."
