Need Your Vote! Contest for SPN Bob Williams Awards
In this special edition of the newsletter, I provide information about how TPPF is a finalist for two State Policy Network awards that need your vote for these awards.
I hope you’re prospering! Before I ask you to vote for two awards that TPPF is a finalist, please subscribe today to this newsletter if you haven’t already and share it with others. My motto: Free-market capitalism best lets people prosper!
For nearly 32 years TPPF has fought for liberty, personal responsibility, and free enterprise in the Lone Star State. As you know, we have been tireless in our efforts to Keep Texas Texan by educating lawmakers with academic research on the biggest issues facing our state.
That's why I’m proud to announce that we have been named finalists for two State Policy Network (SPN) awards: the Bob Williams Award for Biggest Home State Win on the Conservative Texas Budget (CTB) and the Communications Excellence Award for Expanding Your Audience.
Since 2015, we have put forth the CTB in an effort to keep the budget from exploding and raising taxes on Texans beyond what they are able to pay (see figure below). Lawmakers listened and have not only passed budgets that are below the ceiling we set in the CTB but put critical parts of it in statute so that the budget cannot grow beyond population growth and inflation. This will have a long-term impact that will benefit Texas taxpayers, though our work is not yet done.
Not only have we fought for good policy, but we have also put in work to expand our audience so that more Texans are educated on the toughest issues facing our state. These successes of course are not possible without you. Your voice and your support have enabled us to carry on our fight to Keep Texas Texan--so, from all of us at TPPF, thank you.
Thank you for reading this newsletter and sharing it with your network. I pray that we have increased liberty and prosperity. Many blessings to you and yours, and have a prosperous week.
