This week, Governor Greg Abbott signed the Texas Regulatory Consistency Act (HB 2127) into law, helping small business owners better comply with regulations, rather than being burdened by the complexity of multiple jurisdictions of law over their business practices.
Upon the bill becoming law, NFIB State Director Annie Spilman said:
“Uncertainty has been a hallmark of this economic environment. But today, small business owners have a little more certainty in the regulatory landscape of our great state. Our members are grateful to the Governor, Rep. Burrows, and Sen. Creighton for standing up for Main Street.”
NFIB and local job creators testified before both the House and Senate in support of the bill, with one NFIB member saying: “We need the protection of the state, when it comes to cities telling us how to run our businesses.”
