Abbott: Abortion law won’t slow down business in Texas

1 00:00:00,060 –> 00:00:05,580 >> Forbes is out with a survey with a headline that two thirds of college educated workers may avoid 2 00:00:05,580 –> 00:00:07,950 Texas now because of this abortion ban. 3 00:00:07,950 –> 00:00:13,690 >> What’s your response so you do see some publications who 4 00:00:13,690 –> 00:00:18,880 try to categorize the Texas business environment based upon the positions that the 5 00:00:18,880 –> 00:00:24,360 Texas legislature takes. However the truth of the matter shows something completely different. 6 00:00:24,360 –> 00:00:29,530 The Federal Reserve puts out a report every single month that shows the mobility of 7 00:00:29,530 –> 00:00:32,060 people moving from one state to another. 8 00:00:32,110 –> 00:00:37,390 >> Month after month after month including the most recent month shows that people are choosing to 9 00:00:37,390 –> 00:00:42,040 move to Texas more than any other state in the United States and that’s not even close. 10 00:00:42,040 –> 00:00:49,190 >> I just want to put a finer point on this. Are you saying that all of these policies are actually helping to bolster business right now. 11 00:00:49,650 –> 00:00:54,840 >> Again people vote with their feet and this is not slowing down businesses come into the 12 00:00:54,840 –> 00:01:00,600 state of Texas at all in fact it is accelerating the process of businesses coming to Texas particularly Morgan 13 00:01:00,600 –> 00:01:05,820 . Interestingly they are leaving the very liberal state of California and I’m 14 00:01:05,820 –> 00:01:11,640 going to tell you whether it be Elon Musk who I talk to frequently Elon had to get out of California because 15 00:01:11,640 –> 00:01:17,280 and part of the social policies in California and Elon consistently tells me that 16 00:01:17,280 –> 00:01:20,220 he likes the social policies in the state of Texas.
