“A storm the magnitude of Hurricane Harvey could have ripped us apart, but instead it pulled us together and proved that no force is more powerful than the Texas spirit. We salute the heroes of Hurricane Harvey who stepped up… I thank these brave men and women for answering a higher calling, and for putting their lives on the line when they were needed most.”

─ Governor Greg Abbott

Governor’s Commission to Rebuild Texas
