Initiatives

We are working to make Texas freer, stronger, safer and smarter. In the 2017 legislative session, we forged an even broader path to prosperity for more Texas families by building on four pillars: safety and security, education, economic advancement, and the preservation of liberty.

Texas is the Lone Star State for a reason: We stand apart as a model for the nation and the world.

Governor Greg Abbott


Economic Advancement

Every Texan should have greater opportunity for economic advancement. With our low costs of living and high quality of life, Texas remains the best place to raise a family and build a business.

Elevating Education
