Governor Greg Abbott has issues a proclamation ordering select state agencies to close Wednesday in memory of President George H.W. Bush, who passed away this weekend.
“Under this proclamation, the people of Texas are encouraged to gather, assemble, and pay their respects to the memory of George Herbert Walker Bush through ceremonies in homes, businesses, public buildings, schools, places of worship, or other appropriate places for public expression of grief and remembrance,” Abbott said in a statement.
Under the proclamation, all state agencies, with the exceptions of schools and universities, will close for the business day on Wednesday. However, officials do say that minimal crews will still continue to oversee basic government operations at the agencies on Wednesday.
