On this day in 2007, Gov. Perry was joined by state legislators and Texas families in support of the Religious Viewpoint Anti-Discrimination Act, which would clarify existing law so teachers and school administrators would not incorrectly suppress a student’s right to express his or her views on their religion.

On this day in 2011, Gov. Perry met with a delegation of California leaders to discuss economic development, sharing Texas’ approach to attracting jobs and employers to our state. Speaking to the group, the governor said, “Ensuring each state is strong individually is not only good for the national economy, it ensures the rest of the states work that much harder to create jobs and prosperity for their citizens.” Gov. Perry highlighted the Texas combination of low taxes, fair courts, common-sense regulation and world-class workforce that has been consistently attracting California employers to the Lone Star State.
