Business Leaders Agree: Perry is Right for Texas

Economists all over the nation and world have recently tipped their hats to Texas and Governor Rick Perry. In the midst of a tough national economy, Texas has shined through as a beacon of prosperity and opportunity.

Thomas O. Hicks, CEO of Hicks Holdings LLC in Dallas, wrote an op-ed for the Dallas Morning News echoing such praises which have also been featured in publications like the Wall Street Journal.

Hicks writes: “The State has implemented public policies that make Texas economically competitive. Unlike other states, Texas has kept spending in check and maintained a low tax burden. In addition, Texas has enacted tort reforms and minimized regulations that strangle innovation.”

Because of a commitment to low taxes, predictable regulations and job creation incentives, in 2008 more than half the jobs created nationally were created in Texas. The Texas Enterprise Fund (TEF), created under Gov. Perry in 2003 and the largest job creation fund of its kind in the nation, is an essential component to Texas' economic strength and one of its most competitive tools to recruit and bolster business. To date, the TEF has attracted more than $14 billion in capital investment and generated more than 55,500 jobs.

The Texas success story is setting an example for the rest of the nation to follow. With your continued support, we can continue to spread Governor Perry’s conservative vision and keep Texas on the right track.
