Policy Orientation 2016

Friday, January 8 • 9:30-10:45 a.m.

The battle in Washington over the Export Import Bank, renewable energy subsidies, and other forms of corporate welfare have brought this issue to life nationally. But what about Texas? What types of corporate welfare are being offered by Texas’s state and local governments? How much does it cost taxpayers? Does corporate welfare benefit anyone besides the corporations?
