Texas has been blessed with an abundance of natural resources that power homes and fuel cars not only across the U.S., but across the world, too. However, regulators continue to wage an unprecedented war against Texas job creators by targeting our state with job-killing rules that are seemingly endless.
Burdensome, one-size-fits-all regulations from Washington threaten to hamstring Texas job creators and could lead to increased energy prices for consumers across the state. Senator Cornyn has been leading the fight in Congress against the EPA’s unilateral inclusion of Texas in a massive air quality program without allowing for adequate time for review or input from the state. And when the Fish and Wildlife Service threatened the West Texas economic boom by listing the tiny sand dune lizard as endangered, Senator Cornyn partnered with local and state officials to block the listing, potentially saving thousands of jobs. Senator Cornyn is also a leading supporter of the Keystone pipeline, which would carry crude to Texas’s Gulf Coast refineries and create tens of thousands of jobs in our state in the process.
Whether it’s the Fish and Wildlife Service, the EPA, or the West Wing, Senator Cornyn continues to stand up for Texas and fight back against the kind of regulatory overreach that kills jobs and hampers economic growth.
