Senator Nichols, it is unconstitutional for government to shut down businesses and to tell people where they can and cannot go. Fact. Greg Abbott has usurped an authority not his. What will you do to stop this unlawful mandate.

God given rights as long as they are not LGBTQ rights. With all do respect..... go F yourself.

We must put an end to this nonsense!
