Safety

As our state’s economy thrives and our population booms, Texas families and communities face new threats to their physical and financial safety. On the road, on the job, and in the home, Texans are looking for meaningful protections and strong accountability measures. So, priority one for lawmakers should be to adopt common sense steps to put the safety of Texas families and small business owners first.
