@GovAbbott & @realDonaldTrump please allow the @USDOL to extend unemployment in #TX for those Federal Employees who are ON THE JOB without pay. In #TX this includes @TSA Officers, #AirTrafficControllers, @USCG members, @NWS Employees, and MANY more who protect life & property.(1)
Since the weather is my expertise I will focus there. am an elected official and life-long @GOP member and I support the border wall and improved border security 100%! There is a way to allow states to help those Federal Workers who are STILL ON THE JOB but not getting paid.(2)
@potus @realDonaldTrump These dedicated Federal Employees including those at the @nws protect the life and property of the people of the state of Texas 24/7. They are caught in this @SpeakerPelosi / @SenSchumer shut-down over border security they have voted for in the past!(3)
Again speaking only on the weather. These dedicated scientists at the @nws/@noaa and support staffs provide the forecasts, life-saving warnings, and critical weather data every part of our society uses every single day. There is no substitute for these experts.(4)
While I'm 100% sure the same applies to Tthe #tsa officers, #AirTrafficControllers, and @USCG members. There is no other item in our Federal Service that affects every single American/Texan such as the jobs done by dedicated @nws/@noaa employees on duty without pay right now.(5)
@potus @realDonaldTrump, I humbly ask you to act either through EO or another mechanism to release unemployment payments to those @NWS employees ON DUTY AND WORKING without pay! This would allow @GovAbbott to release these funds to the dedicated employees who protect the #TX.(6)
