The Texas House of Representatives recognized the accomplishments of the Texas Public Policy Foundation on the occasion of its 20th anniversary with its passage of HR 943 this morning.

The resolution by Rep. Brian McCall states, among other things, that, “the Foundation has played an integral role in the Texas legislative process by providing principled and independent research and recommendations, and educating elected leaders without regard to their political affiliation or philosophical viewpoint.”

It also notes that “implementation of the Foundation’s research recommendations has contributed to the great state of Texas’ economic successes, as this great state now leads or ranks near the top in the nation in the number of Fortune 500 companies, overall job creation, state financial condition, and proudly ranks almost last in per capita General Revenue tax burden.”
