Five Facts About Committee Substitute Senate Bill 421

Texas is the largest oil and gas producing state, and that production depends on Texas pipelines to deliver affordable energy to consumers. These energy supplies fuel the Texas miracle, which is made possible by a low tax, low regulation operating environment that differentiates us from places like California or New York. Committee Substitute Senate Bill 421 would create new and unnecessary regulations on Texas pipelines that will benefit trial lawyers at the expense of Texas energy.

Today, it’s not unusual for high school dropouts to earn six-figure incomes. In Texas oil boom towns like Midland, Odessa, and Tilden, the unemployment rate has dropped below two percent.

In Case You Missed It



 

Gov. Greg Abbott told a convention of Texas oil and gas producers Wednesday not to worry about Democrats’ Green New Deal, an ambitious agenda to combat climate change that the governor said is so far out and far left that it will only ensure Republican political dominance. “It’s so socialistic,” Abbott said. “It costs so many trillions of dollars. It’s completely unfeasible in any way whatsoever. It shows the way socialism has hijacked the forces of capitalism.”
