The new letter was provided to TNLA with the Commissioner’s express intention that all sectors of the Agriculture industry, as defined under the statute, be protected as essential during the COVID pandemic. As you will notice the language in the letter specifically includes agriculture, horticulture, and floristry.
Governor Abbott’s order GA-14 made clear that all sectors of the Texas green industry are essential. We are thankful for the Texas Department of Agriculture and Commissioner Miller's support in backing up our producers at this critical time.
