Businesses Call for Modern and Transparent Economic Development Program

Austin, TX — The Texas Association of Business (TAB), joined by more than 150 chambers of commerce and partner organizations, today sent a letter to the Texas Legislature calling for a modern and transparent economic development program to keep Texas competitive.

“The Texas economic model is like a three-legged stool. It requires no state income tax, a light regulatory touch, and effective economic development incentives,” TAB CEO Glenn Hamer said. “If we want to keep our trophy case full, the Texas Legislature must create the right tools to attract large capital-intensive investments, bringing jobs and revenue for years to come.”
