AJS Applauds Senate for Passage of Tort Reform Legislation
ALEXANDRIA, VA - Americans for Job Security, a pro-business issue advocacy organization, applauds Gov. Rick Perry and Lt. Gov. David Dewhurst for their strong leadership on the passage of the Creighton-Huffman Jobs and Small Business Magnet Plan (HB 274) in the Senate today.
"Thanks to the principled leadership of Gov. Perry and Lt. Gov. Dewhurst, a strong tort reform bill has emerged from the Senate," said Stephen DeMaura, president of Americans for Job Security. "The citizens of Texas should thank Gov. Perry, Lt. Gov. Dewhurst, Rep. Creighton and Sen. Huffman for their crucial support and leadership on this issue. This important legislation would be a boost to Texas's economy, freeing small business owners from the threat of frivolous lawsuits and securing the Lone Star State's status as a magnet to job creators."
Americans for Job Security has played an active role in supporting this landmark legislation that presents opportunities for Texas's growing economy.
