At a special Austin City Council meeting April 28, Austin Mayor Steve Adler said that he was concerned that Texas Gov. Greg Abbott’s decision to begin reopening many businesses May 1 could be too hasty.
“I’m concerned, personally, that the governor has done this a little bit too early. I am concerned that he may have gone too far,” Adler said. “I am really concerned when the governor suggests that we'll know in a couple of weeks how the new policies work because we won't. If there's one thing I've learned, it's that this is a trailing thing, and it will be probably four weeks until [we] know.”
