Texas Bar Owners Protest at State Capitol

A protest at the Texas Capitol over the closure of bars due to coronavirus. Rally goers say Governor Greg Abbott made the wrong decision last week when he issued the executive order.

Bar owners are asking the state to open back up so they can make a living.

Also in attendance was Shelley Luther the North Texas salon owner who was put in jail last month for opening early despite orders to stay closed. She told the crowd she sympathized with bar owners and encouraged them to prove they could be responsible.

Coronavirus cases have been spiking across the state.
