The governor credited small businesses with creating thousands of jobs and helping strengthen the state's economy. The special designation for this week is meant to honor that significant impact.

"Small businesses offer the freedom to chart one's course, the spirit to make things happen, and the potential for jobs, investment and prosperity," Gov. Perry said. "That's why we work so hard to nurture small businesses in Texas, and that's why our economy has outshone so many other states, even during the worst of the recent recession."

Entrepreneurs in Texas also received recognition from the National Federation of Independent Business. The federation's Texas executive director, Will Newton, praised both small businesses themselves and the state's elected leaders, who have created a positive environment for entrepreneurship.

Similar recognition of small businesses is also taking place in Albany, Georgia this week. As the Albany Herald reports, the mayor of the city and the Dougherty County commission chairman have proclaimed May 24-28 Small Business Appreciation week in the area.
