About Us

Empower Texans℠ exists to assist Texans in creating and sustaining a system of strong fiscal stewardship within all levels of government, ensuring the greatest amounts of economic and personal liberty, and promoting public policies that provide individuals with the freedom to use their strengths and talents in pursuit of greater opportunities. For liberty to flourish, we believe citizens must be empowered to hold their elected officials accountable.

Why we do it?

The greatest threat to our state’s economic growth and competitiveness is the weight of government on the economy. If government and taxes are allowed to grow without restraint, the economy will contract, thereby limiting opportunities for all Texans. We seek policy outcomes that provide increasing levels of economic liberty and opportunity for all Texans by controlling the size of government. Government power and reach must be strictly limited, with elected officials held accountable by active and informed citizens.

The Texas We Fight For
