AUSTIN—The Alliance for Securing and Strengthening the Economy in Texas today released the following statement regarding Gov. Greg Abbott’s 2019 State of the State speech:
“Texas job creators support Gov. Abbott’s commitment to cutting burdensome red tape to keep our economy strong and competitive,” ASSET Spokesperson Annie Spilman said. “Employers are flocking to Texas from other states that have burdensome regulations. The most critical thing state leadership can do is protect the strong economic policies—like smart, consistent regulations—that encourage job growth and create opportunities for Texas families.”
ASSET is a non-profit coalition of job creation organizations that fights for policies that fuel the engines of our economy and protect Texas businesses from invasive and burdensome government regulations. ASSET collectively represents millions of employers and employees in the Lone Star State who believe employment and business operational decisions are best left to private employers, not government.
