Pro-Business · Pro-Texas

In Washington D.C.

The Texas Association of Business (TAB) lobbies in Texas and in Washington, D.C. to make the voice of Texas business heard. The federal priorities of the TAB represent the most important issues to the employers of Texas at the national level. For your convenience, we have compiled our agenda that is developed and approved by the TAB committee structure and Board of Directors.

TAB’s guiding philosophy in taking principled positions on legislative issues is that what happens in Austin and in Washington D.C. directly impacts the bottom line of employers, employees and families in our state. With a healthy business climate comes a strong tax base for the state; a friendly regulatory environment for businesses; improved access to a world-class education; more career opportunities during times of prosperity; and, most importantly, a better quality of life for Texas families.

TAB proudly takes its marching orders directly from Texas employers each time the association communicates with our state and federal leaders; fighting for employers every step of the way. TAB knows that what is best for Texas business is what is best for Texans. For over 85 years, TAB has been the undisputed leader in positively impacting and building the Texas business climate.

TAB hopes to create an environment where businesses continue to thrive, the economy remains robust, and the Lone Star State continues to shine.
