Texas Lifts Its State-Wide Mask Mandate, Some Businesses Disagree

"As of today. Texans are no longer required to wear a mask. In public businesses restaurants included canal. Operate at full capacity without restrictions governor greg. Abbott announced the change last week. Despite objections from public health officials sarah self walbrook of texas tech public media joins us now to talk about the change in policy. Hi sarah good morning. I just explain how bad the covert situation is in texas right now. Yes the governor's new order ins mandates that had been in place since last summer at least somewhat helped texas. Is kobe situation. Abbott insisted there are fewer people in hospitals now and more people getting vaccinated although it is worth noting that vaccinations are taking place at a much slower rate than elsewhere in the country Texans are really split on whether the mask requirement should continue many think. It's too soon to not require masks but others say that wearing masks should be a personal decision and not a matter of public policy so now that there are no state restrictions on this it becomes a local issue right so howard different cities and counties responding one example. We've seen so far. I mean austin a local public health ordinance was established. Yesterday that will still require mask. Wearing the governor's executive orders specifically prohibits cities and counties from doing that. But austin city council in health authority found a loophole that they think allows them to no word yet on how the governor or other cities and counties will respond. What about schools. How how does this change schools. The texas education agency has allowed school board to decide what works best for their districts We've seen a handful that have ruled that mass will no longer be required but most districts are keeping their current rules in place through the spring governor. Abbott made his announcement last week at a mexican restaurant in lubbock. Which is where you are heard. You checked in on how that restaurant is planning to respond to the new policy. Which you learn. I did so. Owner rudy. told me yesterday that when he agreed to host the governor last week at his restaurant montelongo does. He did not know exactly what the governor was there to announce he had expected business capacity limits to be lifted but he was just as surprised as everyone. When the governor ended the mask mandate roselle has decided not to change how he does business so he's keeping his restaurant at about fifty percent capacity and will continue to require employees and customers to wear masks. He said it's up to each individual business and each person the responsibility for their health so really. This variety of responses is exactly what the governor intended with this new order. Sara self walbrook of texas tech public media. Sarah thanks thank you

States property tax revenue Remember Station Kerry's Miranda Swire's reports. His legislative proposal comes his activist nationwide push local governments to rethink how police funding is used. Abbott says the threat of a property tax revenue freeze would make cities think twice before they cut police funding. If they do make the decision to defund law enforcement, they're constricting their ability. To ever be able to meet the other needs they have. Last week, the Austin City Council voted to shift $150 million out of its police budget and into other services. Abbott says police funding isn't the issue if we have police brutality. We don't need fewer police. We need less police brutality. Other Big Texas cities like Dallas and Fort Worth have proposed budgets that keep police funding intact. I'm Miranda Suarez in Fort Worth

The Austin City Council unanimously adopts its new budget cuts a BT Austin police, budget and staffing levels in the Process council's pledging to remove and re invest $150 million from the Police Department by the end of the new fiscal year, and council member Kathy Toivo thinks it's a good first step. We need structural and cultural change with regard to public safety, not just in Austin. Odin departments across the nation on DH. I'm committed to working alongside my colleagues for that change. Meantime, Austin's police chief is pledging that even amid these changes, the Austin Police Department will continue to do its duties. A body chief Brian Manley, says of the challenges presented by council's cuts. The loss of 150 officer positions is the most pressing, he says. They will make sure patrols are not affected. If you call 901 our officers will respond. That is one thing I know is the hearts and minds of our police officers, and they are committed. To serve this community and I do not expect that to change and we will ensure that we do everything we can to have adequate resource is on patrol to address those calls for service. Manley says They will be looking at specialized divisions in the department and pulling out officers as needed to make sure all calls for service are answered. John Cooley NEWS radio K. LBJ. Brian Manley's predecessor, calls the council's decision. Incredulous Art Azevedo, former Austin chief now Houston chief. Tell CBS Austin that the City Council what the City Council has done will have lasting impact on public safety. For years, the economic engine that drives that great city that provides the quality parts of quality libraries of quality of life that we've enjoyed. It is going to go by the wayside. HASA vato, says The City Council's who are pandering to anti cop activist or forced forcing away the good cops, and he's hopeful that it also won't drive away Chief Brian Manly. Governor Greg Abbott is very unhappy with the city of Austin for its decision to slash the police finding by 150 million in a statement, the governor is vowing to address the issue and the next legislative session. He says public safety should be priority number one. But he says the City Council has abandoned that duty. And so he says DPS troopers will be on the stand by to fill in the gaps that will be left by the council's decision. And it is sick.

He's worked hard for that money He really has. Hey, had a paper route. I believe first off when he was a kid. I think he worked at a Ah think he worked at a dairy queen when he was kid as well.

Things like that I thought back to the future is what you watching History class in the 10th grade. That's right. That's right. So glad to hear they're doing business. I'm gonna have to darken their door. So listen coming up in about what time is it now, But about 12 minutes from now, the Austin City Council will resume their discussions. Tio basically cut the police budget. Could be as much as $150 million. But I'll be honest with you. Maybe it could be Morva because this on the City Council's been a little bit unpredictable over the past few months and they get together today. To hammer out how they plan to make transformational change at Austin police headquarters. As they say, Yeah, it's pretty interesting, and they have many people speak last night. Now. Among the things the City Council is considering is whether to slash the department's budget is currently $434 million. They want to cut it by 3rd 150 million. So if you want a business out there are just your personal finances. Just imagine that being cut by 1/3 Well, they say 1/5 of that money, 21 million could potentially go towards things like violence prevention and permanent housing services. That kind of thing, Okay? Whatever. They say things like violence prevention. It just makes me think of some of the things they've done in Seattle, Portland, Los Angeles, San Francisco, Chicago, where they pay kids not to commit crimes. You know what I mean? Well. The budget cuts would also canceled all three of the upcoming cadet classes, which seems kind of ridiculous to say You're going to cut all the classes when you currently are short police officers and you have so many that are leaving at the same time. Such a such a bizarre move, The more we talk about, the more I hear about the crazier it it becomes. The reality is they have been asking form or police officers for a few years. Now they have had a shortage of police officers. The rapid growth in this He and also the just other demands events and rising crime. Everything else they need more police officers so the way that the city government reacts is OK, Then we'll give you less. Yeah show. Latest. It is clearly Mohr than just thinking that they can improve. The police department is it's It's more. It's really personal. They want to get rid of the mounted patrol units. The horse, the horse back riding, you know, they they were been tremendous during these protests stop in some of the knackered, knackered oodles out there. Yeah, it's very useful. Yeah, the money would be moved to other forms of public safety, they say which the council would work to figure out over the next several months. So they're going to take the money and then kick around some ideas on where they could put the money. Seems like we are. It seems like they caught the car. You don't mean this, The dog that caught the car and they don't know what to do now that they caught it, But clearly we're not hearing any solutions that anybody can get a hold of and go. Well, maybe that's a good idea. There is just not there. It's just their main goal is just to tear him down. What is violence prevention? What the hell is that? Well, my understanding was a very, very strong police force that everybody has knowledge of. And by their mere presence, there is less crime. I've always thought that that would be good Violence prevention to begin with, I think the best violence prevention Maneuver or whatever you want to call it. The best thing that prevents violence in America would be to restore the family units. There you go. So would that be their mission? Would that be the violence? Profession? Prevention hope so, department keep families together and you solve a lot of problems that we're facing in this country. So family counseling is what what? Whatever they would be of whatever you want to call it if you if you could restore the family unit In certain demographics of our society than then. Yeah, you can You probably solve a lot of pride. Thank your spot on. So we got a few minutes here and I want to get way. Get it Better than what's mentioned. Kamala Harris know? Oh, I thought we did. I thought we had something They wanted to bring that up. But I guess not. There you go. 51283605 We do. I don't know if this name is right or not. We have eagle calling from bass Drop is what's.

The last couple of days, and one thing they're focusing on is reports that a high percentage of Hispanics are getting the Corona virus and some people are telling them. That's because they're working on construction sites. And more needs to be done to protect them and get better safety on construction sites.

"Streaming live on the news, Radio, K O. B. J and the Austin City Council got an update yesterday on the homeless and the Corona virus. And they were told that there are 270 homeless who are now staying in those four hotels purchased by the taxpayers. And the update indicated the hotels are full. But that doesn't match the number of rooms that we were given when they bought these four hotels. Yet you had four hotels and I think by our math we were it was like 800 to 1000. Somewhere in that range of rooms s 0 270 I think only one of those hotels had that many rooms in it, So that's not. So. What are the other three hotels full with? Good question. It's probably a set up to a sales pitch to buy more hotels. We know they want to do that, and they intend to do that. So get ready, Teo to shell out more money for three or four more hotel. I think we need to do a little checking. But if it's a set up, we need to go to each of these hotels. Ask how many rooms for available or not available on who stay in there? This is homeless coordinator Adrian Stirrup at the Austin City Council yesterday, giving the update, Stirrup said. We have four hotels. They have 270 total homeless people living in the hotels. Now they are full. We have turned off the well. The No vacancy sign is on at thes four hotels, no vacancy, but they are doing other things to help the homeless who do not yet have a hotel room had deployed mobile and stationary shower trailers, portable toilets and hand washing stations. Portable showers, restroom facilities, hand washing facilities. So what? They're just driving around to every place that they see some camping going on and stopping and saying, Okay, you'll have it for the next two hours. Something like that, In addition to setting up Porta potties and things like that at the homeless camps S O. That's enough. Yes, It's not really an update to me because it doesn't really, um, fill in all the blanks. Eso your you have 270 homeless is that Does that mean they all Had Cove it or they just were seeking a place to stay, because that's what some of the hotels were about right just to put homeless off the street that air looking T move forward. So do we have 270 homeless with Cove? It saying there and then all the other rooms. I still want to know how we're full and who were full with us. They're not Homeless individuals filling those rooms. Those are important questions and we do need to know. They said. They've tested 500 homeless. Or Corona virus. 270 have tested positive and they're not sick enough to go to the hospital. But they need a hotel. A hotel? Yeah, so they're staying in the In the four hotels.

over the past several months an ordinance approved by the Austin city council defended by mayor Steve Adler has produced tent cities the homeless and a surge in violent crimes than a great period that's how the opinion piece begins from congressman ship Roy in Texas part of his district includes Austin the mayor says he hasn't read it yet he's not even paying attention to it I'm sure but cave you caught up with the mayor to ask you about some of these homeless issues and the mayor says congressman Jim Breuer should support the homeless active twenty nineteen I think it would be really important for Congress to pass HR eighteen fifty six because that is the bill in front of Congress where we're asking Congress to help cities across the country to actually deal with the challenge of of homelessness sure what other words when we translate to the mayor and the city council the gonna set back there in the backseat on this issue there the backseat on this issue as police chief Brian manly talks about an increase in violent crime yep you heard the story there red marks news this opinion piece in the fox dot com from congressman chip Roy he goes on to say news from California but the state's housing problem provides clear evidence that ongoing homes to camp in the open it creates a public health and safety crisis poor sanitation for homeless individuals living on the streets led to an outbreak of hepatitis a in twenty seventeen that grow to include committees all up and down the state of California and chip was concerned that it's going to happen here he says it's one of the reasons that so many Californians have so I've been seeking refuge here in the state of Texas is yeah jump in here at five one two eight three six zero five ninety chip Reid goes on is you know congressman chip Roy his every again Kluge much of downtown Austin he says he has seen and heard the impact of the homeless problem from local business owners have told him about their increase security needs to finding needles in the parking lots these developments not only in danger the local committee but also have an impact on visitors the perception of the city threatening the you know the vitality of the city your important tourism dollars here in Austin there's no doubt about it now I mean this is the level it's getting not only our our governor but now conversely chip roared going to these links this is putting our homeless issue on the national stage here it's there Austin it's not coming where there Austin does have that reputation now and there is no doubt it is going to hurt us in ways that we haven't even anticipated generally goes on to say the changes in Austin came at the same time that the downtown area experienced an eighteen percent increase in violent crime during the first ten months of twenty nineteen yeah the tragic incidents of last week what a homeless man fatally stabbed to individuals in a restaurant in some prickly died from his injuries speaking to the trauma the homeless problems because for Austin's residents including homeless themselves chip Reid goes on to say in response to the murders last week the surgeon by that crime in downtown Austin governor Abbott has directed the DPS to begin some new patrols around the area I've lived in Austin Texas my entire life I've never lived anywhere but Austin Texas and it is a city that I have been proud of for so many years I am seeing things in the city now that don't don't resemble anything like I have seen before nothing nothing there's the what what I'm saying now is nothing like what I grew up in and it it it really is ripping my life for a can heart out township road goes on to say more broadly Austin must do a better job of issuing housing affordability SR one of the nation's fastest growing city housing stock must grow to accommodate our you know our population otherwise a shortage of houses would push prices and ranch ever upward making any solutions the homeless problems temporary and short lived anti growth zoning restrictions and crushing tax rates do not help solve the problem as we have seen in recent weeks have only created more problems by increasing the homeless popular city is being ruined are we have a mayor we have a city council right now that is ruining white when you want it back off I'm sorry man I say anything well I'm I'm if I didn't say a word if I'm speaking too loudly I'm sorry but this is a very emotional thing for me if somebody that is lived here and you have a city government that is doing everything they can to ruin this city it tends to affect me just a little bit I I I kind of have a route to in this city now as such employee says is a proud Texan who once enjoyed living downtown I know our city can come together and solve the problem the residents of Austin deserved to walk the streets in safety and peace and the homeless themselves deserve better than than the promise of attention in a park he goes on to say working together can prevent California's homeless and housing crisis for migrating to the capital city you know it's what it's what greets it's what greets visitors coming to Austin from the airport when they come in on been white and that's fit to be here he there there are thousands of times a day where people are coming in from the airport on the Ben white and what did they see they see trash they see tense they see things that they should not have to see all right now they see a bunch of construction over there minutes a mass of one eighty three area near the airport maybe bill there lately of course but I yeah it is that that's horrible that they're greeted with that in that what don't worry it'll get worse you'll see trashing you'll see that you know people sleeping on the side of the road welcome come see us robe and real quick in south Austin Ruben what's on your mind how long are great so long listen and so the people I'm also started blowing out it's still going to continue on for years to come no doubt and Tony and telling people start moaning the right way and taking a right wing nothing's ever going to change that's a good point this city council one
