I, RICK PERRY, Governor of Texas, do hereby find that the events of September 11, 2001, continue to give rise to a disaster including, but not limited to, critical disruptions at Texas airports and resultant emergency demand for transportation, shelter, and related services, as described in Proclamation 41-2886 issued by my hand on September 11, 2001; and
