Plumbers from out of state are needed in Texas to help repair frozen pipes, Rep. Chip Roy (R-TX) said on Friday’s edition of SiriusXM’s Breitbart News Daily with host Alex Marlow.
Gov. Greg Abbott (R-TX) temporarily waived certain state licensing requirements to allow out-of-state plumbers to work in Texas. An NBC affiliate in the Dallas-Fort Worth area reported, “Abbott’s office announced Friday it is giving out provisional permits to out-of-state plumbers, and waiving some fees and examination requirements for plumbers whose licenses have expired.”
Roy explained, “I do know that Gov. Abbott has changed the rules in allowing people from outside of state. You don’t have to be licensed in Texas, so get on down here if you’re a plumber from another state and you can get to Texas or any of the surrounding states around us.”
“We’re going to need you, and you’ll be put to work,” Roy said in
