Expanding Economic Opportunity

The Texas economy is stronger when we increase economic freedom for all Texans. In the latest legislative session, we worked to reduce the burden of government and expand economic opportunity by:

  • Limiting the ability for local governments to increase property taxes
  •  Providing lasting property tax relief and increasing taxpayer power in the property appraisal process
  •  Improving opportunities for job creation through licensing reform
  •  Reducing regulatory hurdles that stifle economic growth
