For the Record is viewed across the state as an accurate measurement of lawmakers’ attitudes toward business. Legislators count on For the Record to reflect their actions during session. Constituents count on it to know if their senator or representative kept their campaign promises. And businesses count on it to judge who in the Capitol puts jobs, economic prosperity, and a thriving workforce at the top of their priorities.
Once the Legislature has adjourned sine die, TAB begins the process of reviewing the votes. Under current Texas law, all votes cast are not necessarily record votes. This means that many more record votes may be taken on some bills than are taken on others. The job of TAB is to capture the record votes taken on bills that provide a snapshot of how members supported business across-the-board.
TAB is honored to be the voice of business in Texas and will continue its mission of making the Texas business climate the best in the world.
