|Urge the Presidential candidates to make loser-pays tort reform a priority
Texas is leading the nation in job creation because of its pro-growth economic policies. In the last two years Texas, led by Gov. Rick Perry, has created more jobs than any other state. Recently, Texas became the first state in the country to enact "loser-pays" Tort Reform which reduces frivolous lawsuits and litigation costs, and allows for more expedient justice for legitimate claims which protects small businesses and consumers.
Loser-pays tort reform removes a harmful barrier to job creation and economic growth and would make states more competitive. This reform allows businesses to grow and operate without the constant threat of frivolous lawsuits hanging over their head.
In order to bring and grow jobs we can no longer afford inaction.
Urge the Presidential candidates to make loser-pays tort reform a priority.
