WASHINGTON (Reuters) - Texas Governor Greg Abbott said on Wednesday he will make an announcement next week about a plan to broadly reopen the state's economy during the first week of May after early steps taken so far.

"It's going to be broad-based. We want to make sure we open as many business as possible," Abbott told Fox Business Network. "However, we want to make sure we do it in a very safe way that does not stoke an expansion of the COVID-19."
