On and after the date of this agreement, each reference in the Employment Agreement to the “Agreement”, “hereinafter”, “herein”, “hereinafter”, “hereunder”, “hereof”, or words of like import shall mean and be a reference to the Employment Agreement as amended by this Amendment. This Amendment shall be construed, enforced, and governed under the internal laws of the State of Texas, without giving effect to any choice of law provision or rule of any other jurisdiction. This Amendment may be executed in counterparts, each of which shall be deemed an original but all of which together will constitute one and the same instrument.
