"To you by triple A counter tops. On Thursday, the Austin City Council is expected to order another shutdown. But given that the city needs permission from Governor Abbott to do that, the issue very well may wind up in court general counsel for the Texas Public Policy Foundation, Robert Henke says no matter how you slice this pie, the city will end up on the losing end, and the city knows that in the city has accepted And recognize the fact that as a political subdivision of Texas, its power is inferior, he says. Even if Austin takes this to court businesses should continue operating as normal until the governor says otherwise. Open 19 setting the Austin Police Department hard since March, 39 employees have tested positive that includes 22 cops and 17 civilian workers, and it's really unclear how many of those cases may have been transmitted officers during recent protests. In recent years, the anti vaccination movement growing larger and once a vaccine is fully developed. Director of the University of Texas and her health communication Micmac ERT says the right message has to be tailored to the right people in order to counter act, a growing sense of public mistrust, just being realistic about what communication can achieve and then building your efforts around that, I think is really important, says information changes so rapidly that a lot of people are no longer willing to believe what's told to them by health officials. And, like many others, the Lake Travis School District's hopeful for a return to on campus learning in the fall, Superintendent, Dr Brad Lancaster says the most likely scenario will be giving kids the option of either in class or at home learning. But 100% online classes may end up being necessary. It is possible that a state or county or federal government agency may require that if we have a dramatic increase, if all safety measures are in place, more than 80% of teachers say they would be comfortable returning, although not all of them say they actually would want to. It looks good.

"We hope you are having an excellent day. This Thursday, the Austin City Council will hold an emergency meeting to talk aboutthe Corona virus. CBS. Austin first reported on this emergency meeting, and it's clear from the comments made by Steve Adler, The mayor and council member, Greg Cous are that they are on a path. To ordering another shutdown of the Austin economy. It would last 35 days. It would start next Tuesday and run for 35 days. And there would be penalties in place for anyone who violates the new rules, and we're anticipating that that will lead to a legal showdown. A court battle because councilmember Greg Cancer has been advocating for this shutdown and he's made it very clear, he says. The city is prepared to go to court and battle Governor Greg Abbott. Over this question of whether cities do indeed have the authority to order another shutdown. So we wanted to bring on someone who could provide expert analysis as to how that court battle might play out. Who will be the victor. How long will it take? Etcetera, etcetera. Robert. Hey, Nikki is general counsel of the Texas Public Policy Foundation here in Austin. Robert. Good morning. How you doing? Good morning. Very well. Thank you for having me. Yeah. Good to have you back on NewsRadio. Okay, LBJ, let's look ahead to a possible showdown. We're anticipating Governor Abbott would challenge the city of Austin if they order another shutdown, who would prevail in that court battle? Well, I mean, clearly this state would prevail. And the city knows that in the city has has accepted and recognize the fact that you know, as a political subdivision of Texas as a city Its power is inferior to that of the state of Texas, and you have under Texas law emergency powers given to the governor. In times of a state disaster, which the governor has has exercise and implemented. And so, really, I think what what the city of Boston is trying to do is tryingto politicize this issue rather than work with the governor in finding productive ways to actually address this crisis, and and I disagree with that. And really don't see, either that the city of Boston is necessarily a credible uh, you know, actor in this, you know, given how it's handled this crisis so far, both in terms of inconsistency of policies. And also in terms of inconsistencies with way you know City Council members of the mayor of active during this time What are Austin business owners to do? Robert. If they are caught between a city order and the governor's executive order, they're in a really tough spot. They have been in a tough spot, and you know you you have to sympathize for these business owners who, if they're still standing on their feet, they're definitely reeling from the last several weeks and muds of Of these various emergency orders. It seems to me completely contrary to the idea of public service that you're City Council. People like great Cus. Our mayor, Adler would be so focused on wanting to shut these businesses back down. And put these these workers out of work. You know, we had this shutdown back in March and April, the city imposed And it didn't have the result that the city claims it would have in terms of of decreasing Corona virus. There's nothing to indicate that it would here, it's it's not the responsible way to result to respond. Especially win. You know the news coming out of Texas eyes increasingly positive. I mean the You know the fatalities over the last seven days or down 23%. We've had 10 straight days of flat positivity in terms of Corona virus. And so it's you know that good news is showing that, um, you know, I think the virus is being managed at the same time that People have been able to get back to work and be able to support themselves. Well, Robert it sounds like the city has my guess is they've got their attorneys looking at this because they've talked about businesses would be a nuisance and so forth. If they don't comply with the city orders. You said the state's gonna win. Can you help us understand the mechanics? The city says the locked down in the governor just come right out and say Nope, That's not going to work, and that's the end of it. Or does this go to court? And is there a timeline there? Can you help us understand that? Yeah. How long would it take for that court battle to play out and be resolved? No, I think it would be on an emergency basis, so it would have you know, it would happen, uh, fairly quickly. I think where, you know, whichever party that would file suit would try to get a Um, emergency injunction, Teo, you know, resolve the issue on a preliminary basis. Um, you know, I think another point to make, though, is You know, to the extent that the business is really should pay any further attention to some of this grandstanding by the city of Austin when the city of Boston is not Shown a willingness to enforce its orders. It was two weeks ago that Mayor Adler was standing out in the middle of thousands of people during, you know, one of the recent protest himself, violating his own order. And in terms of these other edicts, the city of Austin has put out you've had a number of businesses that have chosen to follow those, but you have not seen Any effort by the city to actually enforce it on orders. In fact, today, you know, saw comments by the police, the police union chief for city of Austin. How did that talked about how you know Austin police officers aren't likely to be enforcing the current mask edict. So you know if if the city of Austin isn't hasn't shown any seriousness about You know, it's it's orders out there then I think businesses should should kind of take a wait and see perspective in You know, letting the fight play out between the city of Austin and the state. But ultimately looking to the governor's orders. As the source of authority and the source of you know what they should should follow until a court has decided otherwise. Okay, Robert, But do they stay open while they're waiting and seeing To those businesses Stay open. You know, given, you know, given the way that the government has acted during this. I think that the consistency has been that cities and counties have deferred to the state orders issued by Governor Abbott. And so I think it would be reasonable. Your business is to continue to rely upon that. And to follow the governor's executive orders. And to the extent that there is a conflict, I think there be a reasonable state safe harbor to do what Governor Abbott is saying are you know the permitted, you know ways of being open. Until You know, a court would would say that the city had greater power than that. I don't think the businesses anymore should just unnecessarily..

"The. Hello everyone and thank you for tuning into the weekly report is the Texas Kobe Spike Fake News on July, Second Texas, Governor Greg Abbott issued an executive order, mandating the wearing a face bax across the state. Whether indoors or outdoors when six feet cannot be maintained between people in the governor's decree. He cited a rising Kobe case. A rise in test positive ADI and a rise in hospitalizations as justification to force people to cover their faces in public. The move is not only a violation of the civil liberties of all Texans. Habit may have based his executive order on inaccurate information about a rise in Cova. Cases due to the Texas. State Department of Health Services Changing the definition of what constitutes a Cova case. Thanks go to Collin County Judge Chris Hill for blowing the whistle on what appears to be a move in mid-may to redefine what was a covert case to open the door to a massive increase all to match the mainstream media line that a second wave was on its way. In a Commissioners Court hearing for Collin County on May Eighteenth, it was revealed that while previously the determination of a Cova case was a confirmed test result. The definition was suddenly changed to count. Probable cases s cases. At the same time, the threshold for determining probable was lowered to a ridiculous level as Judge Hill, said at that may eighteenth hearing if you have a subjective fever and you have a headache and you live in Collin County. You now meet the qualifications to be a probable code patient. It is a remarkable follow. The standards is now even worse once a probable case was determined based on possibly unrelated subjective criteria. Up to fifteen people in possible contact with that probable case, we're also listed as probable cases. And probable cases were considered cases. Repeat that far across Texas, and is in any wonder. There was a spike in cases also governor advocates claim that hospitals were being overrun by Cova patients was refuted by the Houston hospital directors themselves who said they were nowhere near actual capacity, and in fact we're about the same level as they were last year. The basis for Abbas unconstitutional executive order has been shown to be false. Will he admit his mistake? It is encouraging to see so many local and county officials across Texas announcing. They will refuse to enforce governor Abbot Unconstitutional facemask order. Thankfully the spirit of freedom and love of liberty is still alive in Texas. The second wave is driven by propaganda across the county Koba testing increase from about one hundred and fifty thousand to more than seven hundred thousand per day. You can't drive through Houston without seeing flurry of signs advertising Free Cova tests results in fifteen minutes. Last week Reuters reported at tests skipped around the county by the federal government's were contaminated. Deaths from Corona virus, even the desk with corona virus, rather than deaths from corona virus are down to more than ninety percent since the peak. That decline index continues that means we are closer to herd immunity that will finally killed his virus. Yet Governor Abbott and others across the country sees this as a reason to lock the country back down. Thanks for listening..

"Department you go. That's just some of the conversation up there in Collin County. Got a sniffle. It's called it. Yeah, I got a headache. It's called right. You got a pimple asked this covert and reason that's important is because everything we've been doing about shutting down businesses and schools has been about the numbers on this. And if we can't trust the numbers Then how come we can make these kind of decisions? This is this is dangerous. It's reckless and it's going to destroy lives. Now. I'm not. I'm not downplaying the seriousness of this virus. I'm not trying to downplay it either, but we have been using this data to shut down our economy. That's right then. And you can't just go by the numbers alone. What did the numbers mean? What are they comprised of? And I'm afraid that our mayor wants to shut things down merely based on numbers, not reality, not not the fact that the majority the majority 99.9% of these people are recovering very, very quickly if they have symptoms at all. It's not. It's not fair. It is 7 50 for last night, former Texas congressman wannabe skateboarder and want to be presidential candidates. Beto all work he took to Twitter to call out Governor Abbott. What he says is negligent handling of Kobe, 19 responsible called by Governor Abbott during an interview. Last night's on Ah Beaumont television station average, said the local leaders who were calling for another stay at home order shutdown, like Austin, Texas, is Shut down. Businesses have failed to enforce the current executive orders already in place. Now all, Rork says, it's time for him to go. And you know what There's a lot of Republicans in the state of Texas that agree with Beto will work. In fact, they're calling for a special session. To deal with this issue. We'd love to get your reaction straight ahead because that's what we need is a special session. We need to get some politics involved in this.
