Texas Governor Greg Abbott isn't letting being wheelchair bound slow him down. Just like current Liberal Candidate in Calgary-Centre Kent Hehr, current Conservative Candidate the Hon. Steve Fletcher, PC, Charleswood-St. James-Assiniboia-Headingly, & the late Former President Franklin Roosevelt, Democratic-New York, Greg is showing he has the stamina & the ability to fight for the rights of disabled students & all Texans. A young lady named Kari Hunt has gotten the Texas government & its Chief Executive to sign into law making it mandatory that 9-1-1 or emergency lines be in place for anyone in trouble after the murder of her mom Kari Dunn. This is not really surprising as 9-1-1 wait times for police here in Alberta & other jurisdictions are getting worse in many places so this legislative action makes sense. Having health oversights in place, especially when II (2) cops have died in Alberta alone is wise strategy & I applaud this Great Texan for "rolling along" with this idea.
"There's a lesson virtually every parent teaches their child-if you face an emergency-call 9-1-1. I am signing Kari's Law to ensure that whenever there is an emergency, any child & any adult who dials 9-1-1 is going to be able to connect with emergency personnel to ensure they come to the rescue of those who need help the most. Today cements in history the important role that Kari Hunt has played & I'm thankful for her & her family in changing the course of the future in the State of Texas."
